Linklaters promotes six in City as 24 new partners revealed

Linklaters has made up 24 lawyers to partner in this year’s promotions round, including six in London.

The overall figure is marginally up on last year’s 23, while its City promotions are static on 2012 (23 April 2012).

The promotions, which take effect on 1 May, cover 13 jurisdictions and 11 practice areas, and come alongside the addition of 31 new counsel.

Of the six new partner promotions in London, two are in mainstream corporate two in litigation, one in banking and one in tax.

London receives more new partners than any other office, followed by Brussels Frankfurt, Madrid, New York and Paris on two each. Amsterdam, Beijing, Dubai, Düsseldorf, Hong Kong, Lisbon, Moscow and Warsaw see one partner promotion each.

Globally, the practice to receive the most new partners is mainstream corporate, into which seven have been promoted. In addition, four are in banking and projects, three are in banking, two each in litigation, tax and capital markets, as well as one each in financial regulation, TMT, IP and investment management.

Linklaters senior partner Robert Elliott said in a statement: “These promotions underline our commitment to invest in our global practices in order to enhance the breadth and depth of expertise we offer our clients. Congratulations to our new cohort of partners and counsel. Their promotions are the result of outstanding work and I wish them the very best in leading the firm to further success.”
