Burges Salmon has prioritised women and finance work in this year’s promotions round, with four lawyers joining the partnership - one more than last year.
The rise comes following a drop in the number of new partners made up in 2013 compared to the previous year (30 April 2013). In 2012 Burges Salmon promoted seven lawyers to its partnership, its largest-ever promotion round.
Last year the firm put an emphasis on energy and environment but this year it placed a focus on banking and financial services by promoting acquisition finance specialist Rachael Ruane and funds-focused Tom Dunn.
The promotions follow the departure of lost funds specialist Mahrie Webb to Simmons & Simmons’ low-cost Bristol base (29 May 2013). Webb rejoined former Burges Salmon consultant Helen Hancock, a banking, and property, project and acquisition finance specialist who joined the City firm as a partner in December the previous year (27 September 2012).
Burges Salmon is also continuing its push on food, farming and land and employment. Sian Edmunds specialises in food, farming and land sector disputes, while Luke Bowery is a member of the firm’s employment team.
