Norton Rose Appoints Gerry Pecht as Global Chief Executive

A chief executive officer, chief administrator officer, central executive officer, or just chief executive, is one of a number of corporate executives in charge of managing an organisation – especially an independent legal entity such as a company or non-profit institution.

Norton Rose Fulbright announced today the election of Gerry Pecht as Global CEO of Norton Rose Fulbright, effective January 1, 2021. Gerry Pecht will succeed Peter Martyr, who has led Norton Rose and then Norton Rose Fulbright since 2002.

Gerry concentrates his practice in the area of complex business and commercial litigation, including securities litigation and enforcement, energy litigation, internal corporate investigations and international litigation and arbitration. Gerry regularly represents Fortune 500 companies and their officers and directors.

Peter Martyr, Norton Rose Fulbright’s Global CEO, added “Gerry is a highly experienced business leader, with whom I have worked closely over the past eight years. Gerry is a United States lawyer with a global personal and professional background, making him well equipped to drive the firm’s global business transformation strategy.

The firm is in good hands, and I am certain it will flourish under his leadership.”

Gerry has been a member of the firm’s Global Executive Committee since 2013 and has served as Global Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation since 2014. He joined our Houston office in 1980 and was named a partner in 1987.

Regularly representing publicly traded companies located both within and outside the US and their officers and directors, Gerry built a commercial litigation practice focused on securities litigation and enforcement, energy litigation, internal corporate investigations, international litigation and arbitration. Both Chambers USA and The Legal 500 United States have recognised Gerry for his work in securities litigation.

Norton Rose Fulbright is an international law firm. It is the second largest law firm in the United States and one of the ten largest in the world, by both lawyers and revenue. In 2017/18, Norton Rose Fulbright had total revenue of US$2.1 billion.
