Simmons & Simmons has promoted three women in its latest 12-strong global partnership round.
Those promoted in London made up half of the total round. They are capital markets lawyer Eucharia Bragg, ICT lawyer Lawrence Brown, financial services lawyers Catherine Weeks and Lucian Firth, IP lawyers Andrew Hutchinson and Darren Meale, and commercial litigator Felix Zimmermann.
Outside of London, the firm promoted three in Europe, one in Dubai and one in Hong Kong.
This round is larger than last year, when the firm promoted seven in a reduced round and is back to 2015 levels, when the firm promoted 13 to partner and nine in the UK.
