Eversheds has made up 28 lawyers to its partnership, with more 60 than per cent of the new partners based outside the UK.
The promotions are an increase on 2012, when the firm promoted 22 lawyers including 11 in the UK (3 April 2012).
This year, 10 new partners were made up in the UK and 18 in Eversheds’ European offices. Germany, Ireland and Poland had the greatest number of promotions outside the UK, with each receiving three new partners.
Almost a third of the promoted partners were female – nine out of 28, or 32 per cent.
The firm’s company and commercial practice group, including corporate lawyers, promoted 14 new partners. Litigation accounted for 10 of the promotions and human resources, including pensions and employment, the remaining four.
Chief executive Bryan Hughes said in a statement: “These promotions underpin the firm’s vision, to be the global law firm that sets the standards, as we strive to nurture our talent and retain our focus on working together as one global team to support the delivery of advice of the highest quality, wherever we do business.”
