New MPF chair
Neville Eisenberg, senior partner of law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner, is the new chair of the Managing Partners’ Forum (MPF), following the retirement of Mike Strong. Commented Neville: “Professional services is easily the UK’s largest sector. It is a great honour to chair the MPF which has been the representative body for firm-wide, client-facing and operational leaders at professional firms since 1995. I believe that the views of our member firms constitute a valuable contribution to matters affecting the professions and wider national debates including the impact of Brexit.”

MPF surveyed some 1,500 UK-based firms on 25 October 2016 over the implications of possible trading relationships between the UK and EU following Brexit. 170 leaders responded within 24 hours, confirming the importance and relevance of the topic.
