Three-quarters of Thomas Eggar’s total staff is female, as well as two-thirds of the firm’s nine new partners over the past three years. In general partnership prospects are slim, unless you are in the company/commercial team. The firm has been bolstering its company/commercial and litigation groups at the expense of pensions, which has seen two partner departures in two years.
