Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has announced the promotion of 19 individuals to its partnership, taking effect from 1 May 2021.

Matthew Kay, head of Vario, the firm's group of professional services, is the third promotion to be made outside of traditional legal services as the firm continues its transition to becoming a professional services business with law at the core. This follows the promotion of Hayley Boxall and David Halliwell last year.

The remaining new partners specialise in the firm's core global sectors; Energy, Financial Services, Infrastructure, Real Estate and Technology, Science & Industry.

The promotions span Pinsent Masons' multinational network, with individuals being made up across the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Following this promotion round, the firm's total number of partners is 459, with female representation across the partnership increasing to 28.5%.

Richard Foley, senior partner at Pinsent Masons, says:

"This year more than any other, our people have experienced enormous disruption to their personal and professional lives. Despite everything, they have shown resilience and the ability to adapt and thrive.

Although operating under challenging circumstances, our newly appointed partners have continued to apply Pinsent Masons' values, innovative thinking and solutions-based legal services to achieve the best results for our clients.

Thanks to their hard work and dedication, we have retained our focus on what matters; doing business in the right way for our clients and the communities we operate in. Congratulations to all on their well-deserved achievement."
