Partner promotions soar at Linklaters

Linklaters has increased the number of new partners in this year’s round of promotions making up a staggering 31 lawyers.

The 31 new partners signal a 63 per cent hike on the previous year’s 19 promotions.

Of the total, 12 London-based lawyers have been invited to join the partnership, though the firm declined to divulge which lawyers has gained equity and which had been awarded salaried, or “national” partner status.

The appointments will take effect from May 1.
