Fieldfisher has made up 10 lawyers to partner in a promotions round dominated by the firm’s London headquarters. 

The latest cohort is larger than the previous two years’ rounds, the firm having promoted eight lawyers in 2023 and five the year before that. The group includes five women, marking the third consecutive year that at least half of Fieldfisher’s new partners have been women. 

The latest round covers a number of Fieldfisher’s core areas including financial markets and products, real estate and personal injury and medical negligence.

Unlike last year when half of the promotions were in London with the rest split between Manchester and two of the firm’s European offices, this time round most of the promotions – eight – went to lawyers based in London. 

In London this year’s successful women candidates included personal tax and wealth planning specialist Alice Vink, who was welcomed in the private client team, and Anna Crosby, who specialises in energy finance and spearheads the firm’s ESG finance offering. She was promoted in the banking and finance team, while Helen Thompson was made up in the clinical negligence team and Shaheen Mosquera moved up in the industrial disease practice. 

London also saw the promotion of contentious property disputes lawyer Jamie Mangan in the real estate team and Nathan Capone in the dispute resolution group, where he focuses on complex fraud, investigations, injunctions, asset recovery and enforcement. Financial regulation lawyer Simon Lafferty moved up in the financial markets and products team, with the final London promotion going to Robin Tubbs. He specialises in Court of Protection work, focusing on managing complex deputyships for clients who have sustained catastrophic brain injuries due to serious accidents or medical negligence at birth. 

There was one promotion in the US, where Natalie Farmer got the nod in Silicon Valley in the technology and data group, while the final promotion went to planning and environmental law specialist Jonathan Moore in Dublin in the public and regulatory practice. His promotion follows Fieldfisher bolstering its partner ranks in the city last year with the hire of Ciara Burke from Facebook parent Meta to lead its data protection and privacy team in Ireland. 

Fieldfisher managing partner, Robert Shooter, commented: “I am delighted to welcome our new partners to the partnership, who will no doubt contribute to the success of Fieldfisher. I am also pleased that for the third consecutive year at least 50% of our new partners are women ensuring our commitment to our 2022-2025 strategy.”

The firm said last July when reporting its financial results that it had already achieved a number of the objectives in its 2025 strategy, which centres on European expansion, collaboration and ESG. The firm’s ambition to grow in Europe was bolstered by its launch in Vienna last June, which saw 18 colleagues arrive from local firms. It said it planned to grow further in Europe through expanding existing offices and opening new ones. 

Fieldfisher’s profit per equity partner fell 11% during the 2022/23 financial year to £930k against 11% growth in revenue to £370m.
