Texas-based firm Fulbright & Jaworski has promoted two senior associates to partner in its London office, doubling last year’s tally.
Litigation partners Antony James Corsi and Richard Hill joined the partnership, along with nine other associates in the US.
Last year the firm made up its first partner in London since arriving in the city 30 years ago. Corsi and Hill will strengthen Fulbright’s fast-growing litigation and dispute resolution practice.
London office managing partner Lista Cannon said: “London has made enormous progress in the last few years. Our expansion is continuing on the dispute side, and we have a real need for people of this calibre.”
The firm has also hired two new associates to join the 15 working on litigation and dispute resolution in London.
Corsi, who left Lovells to join Fulbright in 2006, specialises in complex commercial litigation, alternative dispute resolution and risk assessment.
Former Baker & McKenzie associate Hill handles international arbitration, commercial litigation and alternative dispute resolution.
The firm promoted 11 associates to partner in total. They others are: Michael Thomas Clark, Denise Webb Glass, Matthew Kirtland, Christopher Lallo, Michael McCoy, Oscar Rey Rodriguez, David Rosenzweig, Bryn Alan Sappington and Paul Trahan.
