Fieldfisher unveils largest partner promotions round since 2010 as Mishcon makes up three

Michael ChissickFieldfisher has promoted nine lawyers to partner in the firm’s largest partnership round since 2010.

Eight of the partners are based in Fieldfisher’s London office, with one in Brussels.

The firm’s commercial intellectual property and dispute resolution departments have each seen two partners made up. Its corporate, real estate, private client, privacy and intellectual property, and technology, protection and enforcement departments have all seen one partner join their ranks.

Two female lawyers have been made up in the latest round, after no women were promoted last year, when just two lawyers were made up.

The promotions are effective from 1 May 2017 and constitute the largest round since the firm last promoted nine lawyers in 2010.

Managing partner Michael Chissick (pictured) said: ”It is wonderful to see such a range of individuals joining our ranks from different practice groups and offices; those who have trained with the firm and those who have joined us as laterals. These partners are not only a reflection of their own hard work and dedication, but they also reflect the range of opportunities we offer as a firm.”

Three lawyers in the firm’s Hamburg office were also made up to the partnership in November last year.

Meanwhile, Mishcon de Reya has made up three partners in its latest round of promotions.

The firm’s corporate, employment and real estate departments have all seen one partner made up, including two female partners.

The firm has also appointed seven legal directors. All of the newly appointed 10 are based in the firm’s London office.

In 2016, four female partners were made up in the six-strong round.
