Corporate benefits from Nabarro’s hike

Nabarro has elected seven associates to the partnership, the biggest number in two years, bringing the firm’s total to 127.

The biggest beneficiary was pure corporate, underlining Nabarro’s push into this area in recent years. London associates Richard Beavan and Russell Holden, who both trained with the firm, got the nod.

Senior partner Simon Johnston said: “It’s notable this year that four of our candidates were trainees with the firm, and one will be working on a part-time basis. They’ll make great additions to our growing partnership.”

Historically Nabarro has brought in more corporate lateral partners than internal promotions. Over the last three years the corporate department has hired nine laterals. The latest promotions bring the internal promotion count to just three in the last three years.

The wider real estaterelated practices bagged three: Jonathan Cantor in corporate real estate, Joshua Risso-Gill in planning and Jeremy Shields in real estate. Also promoted were Glen Flannery in restructuring and Louise Gellman in IP.

The firm also elected seven partners in 2004 and 2005.
