The latest round of partner promotions at City firms indicates some progress toward greater gender equality at the top, with women making up a higher number of newly promoted partners than in previous years.
Meanwhile, almost half of promotions across Hogan Lovells’ network of offices – and four out of eight promotions in London – were awarded to women.
Women lawyers comprised 42% of promotions globally at Norton Rose Fulbright, but only one out of eight partner promotions at the firm’s London office.
McDermott Will & Emery said its promotion round was “30% diverse” (ie, not very diverse at all).
The five magic circle firms have yet to release information about their promotions.
