The article reports that Hammonds is making up a record 15 new partners this year, following a year of turmoil at the firm that has seen 14 partners quit since January. It is believed that the new partners will all join Hammonds' fixed-share equity, which was created last May to replace salaried partner status. The bulk of the promotions come in London, which sees five new partners in four departments. The new German partner, commercial and IP specialist Philipp Suss, is based in Munich. The promotions will be a boost to the firm.
