Liam served as a member of our firm’s Executive Committee for several years, and has long held senior leadership roles in our firm. In his new position, Liam will provide the firm with the benefit of his extensive experience and great energy, and I will work closely with him as we look towards 2020 and beyond. Finally, I would like to thank John Larkin for his considerable contribution to the Firm during his term as Chairman”.
