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.
Lawrence Graham (LG) has promoted three lawyers to partner from 1 May after making up four last year.
Two of the new partners are in London in the form of IT, IP and sales and marketing lawyer Vanessa de Froberville and restructuring and insolvency associate Robert Paterson.
The City firm is also promoting Monaco-based private client lawyer Frederic Mege, who is dual-qualified in French and English law and joined the firm in 2008.
LG managing partner Hugh Maule said in a statement: “All three new partners have won and nurtured prestigious UK and international clients and have shown both commitment and innovation. They have demonstrated outstanding client management skills and have worked hard to help develop their practice areas.”
In 2012 the firm promoted four London lawyers to partner after adding one Monaco partner in February in an off-season promotion (18 April 2012). In 2011 it made up just two (14 April 2011).
The firm said nine lawyers had also joined the firm laterally at partner level since March last year.
