Mishcon de Reya doubles last year's partnership intake with six making the grade

New Mishcon de Reya partners Laura Chandler and Charlie Sosna

Mishcon de Reya has promoted six lawyers to its partnership, double the number made up by the firm in last year’s intake.

All six of the partners are based in Mishcon’s London headquarters, with two each in the firm’s real estate, corporate and private client departments.

Two of the six new partners are women, mirroring the number of female partners promoted by the firm last year.

The new partners include commercial real estate specialists Simon Chadowitz and Edward Hughes-Power, alongside corporate duo Laura Chandler and Andrew Wolfin.

The private client promotions, meanwhile, are Emma Woollcott, who heads up Mishcon’s reputation protection group, and Charlie Sosna, who is a member of the firm’s multi-disciplinary luxury assets group.

The promotions took effect on 10 April. At the same time, the firm has also promoted seven legal directors in London.

Managing partner Kevin Gold commented: “We are always proud of the talent in the firm and it’s a real pleasure to be able to promote 13 people to our senior team. Congratulations to all.”

As well as Mishcon’s three partner promotions last year, the firm also made up two non-lawyers to senior equity partner, with business development director Elliot Moss and human resources director Vanessa Dewhurst making the grade. The move came as part of the firm’s ’10-year vision’ to reward everyone – lawyer or non-lawyer – contributing to its success.
