This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Allen & Overy (A&O) and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer have made up 18 lawyers apiece to their partnerships in this year’s promotion round.
While A&O’s figure is a drop from last year’s 20, Freshfields made up four more partners this time around. Of Freshfields’ new partners, six come from its London office, while only two of A&O’s are based in the City. Three women from each of the magic circle firms made the grade, representing 17 per cent of the new partners.
