Linklaters promotes 24 lawyers to partner
Linklaters is granting 24 lawyers the title of partner in this year's promotion cycle.
The 24 promoted lawyers represent a slight increase over the past two years of promotions, with only 21 lawyers making partner in 2014 and 23 making partner in 2015. Ten of this year's promoted lawyers are London-based, while five are based in Hong Kong. Two notable names on the promotion list are private equity lawyer Will Aitken-Davies, who hails from the London group, and Hong Kong-based arbitration lawyer Justin Tang. This round of promotions takes effect on May 1, 2016.
