Ashurst partner and board member asked to leave

A partner in the Munich office of global firm Ashurst, who also served as a board member, has been asked to leave the firm.

In a statement given to Lawyers Weekly, a spokesperson for Ashurst said that Bernd Egbers, who came to the firm as a senior associate in March 2006 before being made partner in May 2009, was asked by the firm’s board to leave “as a result of conduct which is contrary to our values”.

On his LinkedIn page, Mr Egbers is currently listed as having been a board member – or “Aufsichtsrat” – for the firm in Munich since October 2016. His page on the Ashurst website redirects to the firm’s banking and finance practice group page.

The firm’s spokesperson continued: “There is no connection with any client or client matter. Given the interests of those involved, we will not be commenting further."
