Ashurst promotion round misses female partner target
Ashurst has promoted 19 new partners during its latest round, four of whom are women. The current promotions round misses the firm’s target of 40 per cent female representation among partner promotions by 2018.
The 40 per cent target was set in 2014 following Ashurst's financial merger with Blake Dawson. Since then, the firm reached its target in 2015 but fell short in 2016 and 2017.
This year’s promotions include lawyers from London, Continental Europe, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore.
