Slaughters promotes seven to partnership in London
Slaughter and May has announced the promotion of seven London associates to the partnership, following two promotions and one lateral hire in Hong Kong earlier this year.
This year’s promotions round is a considerable increase over the last few years, when the firm promoted just a couple of partners a year.
Three of the seven new partners are women - Anna Lyle-Smith, Azadeh Nassiri and Susannah Macknay.
Richard Clark, Slaughters' Executive Partner, told RollOnFriday that "we are delighted to be welcoming seven new partners. Although a higher number than the last few years, our numbers do vary from year to year and of course are reflective of the quality of the candidates and the strength of our business across a wide spectrum of practice areas."
