Mayer Brown promotions round favors Americans and men
Mayer Brown's latest worldwide promotions round saw 27 new partners around the globe. The distribution of those promotions tipped the scale considerably toward the United States and for men, overall. Of the 27 promoted partners, 20 were based in the United States and only four of the promotions went to women.
Mayer Brown's Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, New York and Washington, D.C. offices all saw promotions. Around the rest of the world, the firm's offices in Brussels, Hong Kong, London, Paris and Rio de Janeiro saw one or two promotions each.
The main practice areas to benefit from the promotions were the litigation practice with seven new partners, the banking and finance group with six, and the corporate and securities practice with four new partners.
