Wim Dejonghe, senior partner at Allen & Overy, commented, “Following careful consideration, the Board unanimously selected Khalid as interim global managing partner. Khalid is ideally suited to take up the role, and I would like to thank him on behalf of the firm for his commitment and leadership. I look forward to working closely with him to continue delivering on our strategic aims, staying focused on our clients and people, and holding the proposed merger vote by the end of October.”
