International law firm Pinsent Masons has announced the promotion of 15 new partners, taking effect from 1 May 2019.

One third of the new partners are based outside of the UK. This promotion round also includes the first partners to be made up in Perth and Madrid since those offices were opened in 2017.

Of those being promoted, nearly half trained at the firm and almost 50% are female, taking the firm’s current gender demographic across the partnership to 26%. As of 1 May 2019, Pinsent Masons will have 458 partners.

95% of those being promoted specialise in the firm's five global sectors; Financial Services, Infrastructure, Energy, Advanced Manufacturing & Technology and Real Estate.

Richard Foley, senior partner at Pinsent Masons says:

"We have a diverse range of skilled lawyers, innovators and progressive thinkers at Pinsent Masons and all of them play an important role in delivering legal services to our clients.
