K&L Gates announces small promotions round

March 5, 2018 K&L Gates has scaled back on its promotion round this year, with 34 new partners being made up globally, three of whom are from the London branch. The three new City partners are Jennifer Marsh, Martin King, and Catherine Adam.

Competition associate Marsh trained at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and spent some time at Travers Smith before making the move to K&L Gates in 2011.

Retail lawyer Adam was at Olswang until joining the US firm in 2016. King has been with the firm for the longest amount of time, joining in 2007. The disputes lawyer trained at Norton Graham & Jones, a firm that was acquired by K&L Gates in 2005, before the firm had changed its name.

Not since 2012, when 30 partners were made up, has K&L made such a small promotions round.
