Stefanie Luhrs, who works in Clyde & Co’s cyber practice group in Brisbane, is one of 26 lawyers who have been promoted to equity partner at the global law firm.

Of the 26 promotions, 22 are effective as of 1 May, while the other four were made in recent months. Forty-six per cent of those elevated to equity partner are women.

The promotions include two in the Asia-Pacific region (one in Singapore, one in Brisbane), two in Europe (Paris and Dusseldorf), four in North America (two in the US, two in Canada), five promotions in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, all of which are in Dubai, and 13 in the UK (six in London, two in Manchester, two in Bristol, one in Cardiff, one in Birmingham and one in Edinburgh). 

In a statement, Clyde & Co said that the promotions “reflect the firm’s continued broad growth across its regions and practices. Five promotions in Dubai, the highest figure to date in this office, is further evidence of growth across the MEA region following the opening of an associated office in Egypt in February 2023.”

The firm’s senior partner, Carolena Gordon, said: “As a firm, we unequivocally pursue excellence in our chosen sectors and seek to provide expert, integrated counsel and service to our clients worldwide.

“It is, therefore, incredibly rewarding to be able to promote exceptional talent across the globe and help people build fulfilling careers with us.

“Our new partners embody our core values — not only do they have the professional skills, commercial understanding and sector specialism to allow them to excel for our clients, but they work collaboratively, act with ambition and lead our diverse teams with understanding and care.

“They are a credit to the firm, and I wish them well as they join our 500-strong partnership.”
