CLCA appoints Martin Jenewein as its new Chairperson

Martin Jenewein, Senior Partner of the CLCA’s Austria member firm, SMJ Consulting, has taken over as Chairman of the CLCA starting January 2018. He replaces Louise Beeson of CLCA’s UK member firm Bell Yard Communications.

Martin Jenewein comments: “I am delighted to take on the leadership role of the CLCA.  I have long been an active and committed member of the CLCA and am passionate about its potential. I intend to further expand the footprint of the CLCA and to help encourage greater collaboration between member firms. I also hope to make the CLCA better known for its unique expertise in the area of Litigation PR. Watch this space! My special thanks go to the dedicated team of Bell Yard Communications and Louise Beeson who were the co-founders of this excellent network.” 

Louise Beeson comments: “It was an honour to head the CLCA for the last 3 years. In this time, we attracted five new talented member firms and launched an enhanced website, hosted several meetings of members to exchange ideas and know-how, and adjusted the membership structure.  During 2017, the Alliance exchanged the highest number of client mandates in our history, with multiple cross-jurisdiction instructions.  I am confident Martin will now grow the Alliance further, taking it to new heights during his tenure. He is a highly popular choice for the role and maintains all our support as he spearheads the CLCA’s next exciting chapter.”
