Sidley Austin elevates Europe in partner promotions

Sidley Austin Brown & Wood’s London office has seen two of its lawyers gain partner status in the firm’s recent round of promotions.

Of the 30 Sidley Austin lawyers made up this year, compared to 28 who gained equity in the previous year, two hail from London specifically from the office’s international finance group.

Last year, no European associates were made up, with the lion’s share of new partnership members were based in Chicago, New York and Washington.

However as part of this year’s haul, as well as the London promotions, Brussels-based Maurits Lugard, an international trade and dispute resolution specialist, will also gain equity.
