US partner promotions: Jones Day makes up two in London from 47-strong round

Jones Day has become the latest US firm to announce its partner promotion round with 4% of the 47-strong round making the ranks in London.

Two lawyers were promoted in London – Anthony Whall who advises on UK corporate and international tax matters, and Glyn Powell from the investigations practice. All promotions will go into effect 1 January 2016.

The total number of promotions has risen since last year when the firm made up 42 lawyers including three City promotions, and a significantly reduced round in 2013 which saw 34 make the ranks with two in London.

The bulk of this year’s round was made up in the US including in the firm’s New York, Atlanta, Washington DC, Chicago, Boston and Pittsburg offices.

Outside of the US and apart from London, promotions were made in Mexico City, Dubai, Singapore, Taipei, Brussels, Paris, Dusseldorf, Munich and Irvine.

In comparison Mayer Brown’s City lawyers made up just 7% of its total round worldwide; Ropes & Gray promoted two new London partners in global round of 17; Baker & McKenzie in contrast made up just three City lawyers in a 83-strong promotions; while Reed Smith promoted seven in the City in a 24-strong partnership round.
