Smith is best known for pioneering "partnering and convergence" arrangements with clients such as DuPont and Tyco International, in which Eversheds agrees to discount its rates in return for a guarantee of a significant share of the company's external legal work. He will formally begin his four-year term on May 1, 2014.
