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.
Linklaters has made up 14 new partners, with eight coming from the ranks of its London lawyers.
The total figure is down four from last year, but the proportion of new partners based at the magic firm’s City HQ is up by two. Away from London, no other jurisdiction has received more than one new partner.
In terms of practice area, banking has the edge in this year’s promotion round, with three partners - two in London - being made up. There are two each from the firm’s capital markets and mainstream corporate groups.
In addition to the new partners, Linklaters has appointed 21 counsel and elected 11 national partners to the equity. The firm has recently restated its commitment to reducing the number of salaried partners in its ranks (22 February 2010).
Senior partner David Cheyne (pictured) said: “These promotions highlight our continued commitment to investing in our global practices in order to enhance the breadth and depth of expertise we offer our clients. I’d like to congratulate our new partners and counsel on their promotion and look forward to working with them to lead the firm to further success.”
