Last year the firm promoted three (30 April 2010), which was the same number that made the grade in 2009 (23 April 2009).

All five of this year’s new partners, who will take up their positions in May, are based in the firm’s London office.

Tom Dane, who trained with Nabarro and qualified as a solicitor in 2002, joins the firm’s commercial dispute resolution partnership.

Stephanie McDonald, who qualified in September 2002 and joined Nabarro in July 2007, has made partner in the firm’s projects group. 

Christopher Stanwell, who qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and joined the firm in 2004, is a member of the firm’s planning group. 

Real estate lawyer Clare Thomas qualified in 2000 and joined Nabarro in 2004, while disputes lawyer Ben Trust qualified in 2002 and joined Nabarro in 2007. 

In a statement the firm’s senior partner Simon Johnston said: “Nabarro’s committed to investing in the firm’s future and I’m delighted that we can expand our partnership from within.

“All five promoted today are extremely talented individuals, who’ve already made significant contributions to the firm, and their appointments reflect the future growth strategy of the firm.”
