Five of the seven partner promotions were in Camerons’ commercial, regulatory and disputes practices.

Four of the firm’s partners have been promoted from the firm’s three-year salaried gateway to full equity status, including London partners Ben Holland (energy) and Yuban Moodley (commercial, regulatory and disputes). In addition John Fitzpatrick in Bucharest and Leonid Zubarev in Moscow have been promoted to the equity.

Camerons managing partner Duncan Weston said: “I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to appoint nine new partners in what has been a difficult and challenging economic period.”
