Addleshaw Goddard promotes nine between UK and Dubai
Addleshaw Goddard has announced its 2018 promotions round, with nine lawyers being made up to partner, in the UK and Dubai.
Last year the firm promoted just five partners, despite 2015 and 2016 seeing 15 and 18 promotions respectively. The lull in promotions coincides with an increase in lateral hires, most recently with the recruitment of Bob Charlton, who was formerly the Asia head at legacy Berwin Leighton Paisner. The firm has made 13 other lateral hires since the start of 2018 alone.
This year’s promotion rounds have been somewhat eclectic, with some firms, such as Taylor Wessing, Dentons, and Holman Fenwick Willan scaling back, and others, such as Eversheds Sutherland and Linklaters increasing their typical promotions rounds this year.
