Taylor Wessing has made up 12 associates to its partnership, with just two in London, in a reduced round of partner promotions. The number of new partners made up at the firm has come down from 17 last year and 19 in 2008. Taylor Wessing’s German offices have seen the bulk of this year’s promotions. Three of the new partners are based in Düsseldorf with a further three in Hamburg. London and Paris will have two new partners apiece, with one each coming from Berlin and Munich.
