Eversheds welcomes 19 new partners in latest promotions round

Eversheds has promoted 19 lawyers to partner across its UK, European and South African offices.

Eight of the group are based in the UK, working out of the firm’s offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Leeds and London, while a further 11 are based overseas.

The firm made up 12 into company commercial and litigation and six into dispute management.

Chief executive Bryan Hughes (pictured) said: “These promotions reflect our exceptional talent pipeline across the world. All of our new partners have shown outstanding leadership in a difficult economic climate and have demonstrated the ability to combine high quality legal expertise with commercial acumen and service excellence.

“Our continuing success will be built upon these future leaders and we take pride in recognising and rewarding our best talent.”

This comes after news that Lovells has promoted 21 ahead of its merger with Hogan & Hartson (15 April 2010), while Allen & Overy and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer have each gained 18 new partners (5 April 2010).
