    After a flurry of internal promotions in 2004-05, Russell Jones & Walker has slowed down of late. It made up four in 2005-06 and only one in 2006-07, in the employment department. Inevitably, given the firm’s business focus, employment, criminal and personal injury are the practice areas to have gained the most number of partners in the past three years.
