International firm DAC Beachcroft has become the latest top practice to announce a strong new female cohort in its partnership. It has promoted 19 lawyers, including 10 women to the partnership. All but three of the promotions are for lawyers based in the UK. Of those, eight are women. The promotions mean the firm has 33% female representation in the partnership.

Elsewhere lawyers in Dublin, Madrid and Mexico City have also been promoted.

David Pollitt, managing partner, said: ‘We take great pride in fostering an environment where our colleagues can succeed and reach their full potential – in fact, three of our new partners joined the firm as trainees.

‘Each of these new partners exemplifies who we are as a firm and has demonstrated time and time again the excellent legal skills, cutting-edge delivery expertise, and determination we expect and, indeed, promise our clients.’
