Baker McKenzie promotions 2017: five get nod in London

Baker McKenzie has promoted 80 of its lawyers to partner, with five being made up in London.

The five in the City are corporate lawyer and mining/energy specialist Susie Davies, the employment team’s Kim Sartin, competition lawyer Jennifer Revis, financial services lawyer Mark Simpson and Ben Farnell of the real estate group.

It is the second year in a row the firm has promoted three women and two men in London.

The finance team sees its first partner promotion since 2012, while it has been more than a decade since real estate made up one of its own. Meanwhile, it is the third year in a row that an employment lawyer has been promoted, and the second year in a row that corporate and competition associates have been elevated.
