The region where the most promotions were made was Europe (10), with five promotions in the London office, four in Norton Rose’s Munich office and one in its Frankfurt office. Eight promotions to partner were made in Canada; six in South Africa; one in the Middle East, and one in Latin America.

Peter Martyr, Norton Rose’s global chief executive, commented: “The partner promotions reflect the international strength and diversity of our practice, which will grow again significantly in June when we combine with Fulbright & Jaworski.”

Norton Rose announced in November that it will combine with leading US law firm Fulbright & Jaworski on 3 June.
