The move follows a round of promotions at Fulbright in which eight promotions to partner were made across five US offices, and one promotion in Hong Kong.
For the second consecutive year, female partners account for a strong percentage of Norton Rose promotions, with 42 per cent of promotions this year coming close to matching last year’s figure of 44 per cent.
