Baker McKenzie law firm is pleased to announce that 84 of our colleagues have been promoted to partner. Promotions take effect from 1 July.
A job promotion is when an employee is elevated to a higher rank, position, or role within a business or organisation because of their exceptional performance. Job promotions are usually accompanied by increased responsibilities or a higher salary.
Across the law firm’s practice groups globally, Tax and Dispute Resolutions saw the largest intake of new partners, with mergers and acquisitions also significantly adding to their numbers.
During Financial Year 2020 Baker McKenzie also added 68 lateral partner hires, demonstrating the Firm’s continued commitment to investing in top talent across the globe. Combining this year’s promotions and new lateral talent, the law firm added 152 partners to its ranks.
Milton Cheng, Global Chair of Baker McKenzie, said: “Congratulations to all of our new partners. Welcoming 152 new partners, both home-grown and lateral, over the last 12 months is a clear sign of the importance we place in the long-term growth strategy of the law firm.
