US firms favour London in partner promotions
06 January 2012
US law firms have started announcing their new partners, and by and large London has done very well.
Bingham & McCutchen has promoted four lawyers in London out of nine globally. White & Case sees six new partners in London (out of 21 globally) and Reed Smith four (out of 22). And Jones Day promoted five (out of 45) in London, impressively all of whom trained with firm.
Hogan Lovells, which can still just about lay claim to being a transatlantic firm, promoted eight in London out of 35 globally. And bringing up the rear was US firm Akin Gump, with one London partner out of seven global appointments.
