20 Mar 2018 | 10:01 am | 1 min. read

International law firm Pinsent Masons has announced the promotion of 23 individuals to its partnership, taking effect from 1 May 2018.

Almost one third of the lawyers being promoted are based outside of the UK. The firm maintained a steady pace of international expansion in 2017, launching offices in Madrid, Dublin, Johannesburg and Perth.

Of the individuals promoted, almost 90% specialise in the firm's five global sectors; Energy, Financial Services, Infrastructure, Real Estate and Advanced Manufacturing and Technology.

One in four of those promoted are female. The firm’s current gender demographic across the partnership is just over 25%. During the last three years, just over 45% of the firm’s internal promotions have been female as Pinsent Masons strives to reach its next milestone of 30% female partnership by 2020.

Richard Foley, Senior Partner at Pinsent Masons says:

"This is our largest promotions round in three years and demonstrates that we are a growing and increasingly global business. A key ingredient of our success has been a focus on investing in our people. We have worked hard to create both a level playing field, and an environment in which our people can develop the deep sector-specialism and innovative mindset that characterises a Pinsent Masons partner.  All of those being promoted reflect those attributes, along with a deep commitment to the firm's values, and I offer them my sincere congratulations."
