The promotions, which are effective January 1, 2017, represent 11 of the firm's global practices in 17 locations. Including in those 40 world-wide promotions are Czech Banking lawyer Jan Linda and Polish Disputes specialist Michal Subocz.

"This is our largest partner class in six years and reflects our commitment to growing from within. More than half of our new partners are based in the United States and London, in line with our stated strategy to grow our offices in these locations."
