The promotions are across seven offices and eight practices. By country, eight of the new partners are in Australia, four in the UK, and one in each of Belgium, Germany and the US. 67% of the partners promoted this year are female.
"I would like to congratulate all of the partners on their promotion," chairman Ben Tidswell said. "They are a tremendously talented group of people with outstanding leadership qualities and an exceptional track record in client service. I’m confident that they will all play a valuable role in realising the ambitions we have set ourselves as a firm, supporting clients as they navigate uncertain times and contributing to the future growth of both Ashurst and our clients."
"It is great to be celebrating the strength and depth of the talent we have here at Ashurst, demonstrating our commitment to, and investment in, the future of the business. I am also very pleased that this year more than two thirds of those promoted are women. As a firm we are dedicated to continuing to increase the diversity of both the partnership, and the business more broadly, and see it as being a business critical requirement. We have made excellent progress and are fully committed to building on that momentum," Paul Jenkins, global managing partner added.
Partner promotions were delayed by six months this year as part of a suite of measures implemented as a consequence of COVID-19. Ashurst is committed to investing in the future of the firm and looks forward to welcoming a new cohort of partners in May 2021.
