Bakers boasts largest female partnership after promo round

July 4, 2018 Baker McKenzie has promoted 68 lawyers in its 2018 global promotion round, including six in London.

Between the 68 new promotions, 40% of which are female, and the firm’s 53 lateral hire throughout the financial year, the partnership has reached over 1,600 members. With over 400 of those being women, the firm claims now to have the largest female partnership of any firm globally.
