Private client firm Withers has promoted six lawyers to its partnership taking its total to 95 partners.
Last year the firm made up seven partners, and brought in three laterals. It has been three years since Withers last made up two in litigation, signalling a rise in demand for advice on trust litigation.
Margaret Robertson, managing director at Withers, said: “These promotions reflect the firm’s investment in talent across our US and UK offices and are indicative of the growth in our international and domestic private client and litigation practices. The appointments demonstrate our commitment to servicing the globally wealthy who have family, business and charitable interests around the world.”
In the London office private client lawyers Sarah Cormack, Filippo Noseda and Erik Wallace made partner, along with Graeme Kleiner and Pierre Valentin in litigation.
Chris Uzpen became a partner in the firm’s US income tax practice.
