Partner promotions at Clifford Chance have plummeted, falling to 18 from 31 in the previous year. Compared with 2002-03, when nine London lawyers reached equity, this year’s round of promotions show that in the UK just four have made partner. In New York, meanwhile, one attorney joined the partnership compared with the previous year’s two.
