Addleshaw Goddard has promoted eight of its lawyers to partnership, the same number as were made up last year.
The all-male promotion round, which comes into effect from 1 May, brings the total number of new partners at the firm since the beginning of the current financial year to 27.
"Refreshing and strengthening our partnership through lateral hires and internal promotions is a key element of our plan to deliver better for clients and take new market share," said Addleshaws senior partner Monica Burch.
"The partner team is now significantly stronger than it was a year ago - we have increased our international offering, invested in our UK capability, and these additional internal promotions will bolster our partner-level strength in disciplines where we are targeting further growth."
Commenting on the all-male promotion round, Burch said: "We have a strong cohort of managing associates pushing for partnership and I anticipate that we will have a more gender balanced slate next year and going forward."
Yesterday, Addleshaws confirmed its corporate head Phillip Goodstone has left the firm to join EY, to help launch the auditors' push into the UK legal market.
