Chief executive David Gray said the promotions reflected the success the firm has had including a serious number of new client wins.
"Our success is rooted in the commitment of our people and these promotions recognise the knowledge, skill and excellent client service delivered by them," said Gray. "I am pleased to see the number of new corporate partners which shows how this part of our work continues to expand."
Corporate took the most partners with 13 made up, while real estate added seven, commercial six and human resources four.
The firm made up seven women - 23 per cent of the new partners - with commercial taking the most with three, followed by corporate with two. Real estate and human resources took one women a piece. This is a 10 per cent drop on the previous year.
The promotions span across Eversheds 23 international offices, though London had the largest increase with eight new partners.
The firm also promoted a record 33 lawyers to senior associate and 72 to associate.
