Camerons comes good as 10 make the grade

CMS Cameron McKenna has made up for a poor showing last year with 10 promotions to its partnership.

The new partners will be the first to be voted into the non-equity tier, which was introduced earlier this year (The Lawyer, 25 January) following a three-year strategic review.

The firm scrapped its all-equity partnership after less than six years to be more financially flexible, said managing partner Dick Tyler.

The salaried partners will have limited voting rights and will have to spend at least three years in the salaried tier before being considered for full equity partnership.

The firm has promoted seven in London and three in its Central and Eastern European offices. This is in stark contrast to last year, when it made up just three partners firmwide.
