Eversheds Sutherland has made 20 partner promotions, with 50% of these promotions outside the UK in countries such as Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Latvia and the United Arab Emirates. The round is a reduction on last year when the firm made up 26 partners.
Within the UK there are ten partner promotions across Birmingham, Leeds, London, Manchester and Nottingham. Of these promotions, 30% or a total of six partners, are female.
The firm’s company commercial practice group, which is headed up by legacy Eversheds partner Keri Rees, has seen the largest amount of partner promotions, with 14 in total. Four partners have been made up in litigation and dispute management, while two were promoted in the firm’s real estate group. In addition, eight legal directors have been promoted in the UK.
Commenting on the promotions, Lee Ranson, Eversheds Sutherland managing partner and chief-executive-elect (pictured) said the broad geographic spread of the promotions spoke volumes about the strength in depth across the group.
‘We continue to increase our overall proportion of female partners and that remains an ongoing aspiration. In the past week, we were recognised by The Times as a Top 50 Employer for Women for the sixth consecutive year.’
Earlier this month, Addleshaw Goddard released a drastically reduced round of partner promotions, with only five lawyers promoted to partner.
