Simon Konsta, senior partner at Clyde & Co, said the new partners reflect the diverse range of people, talent, and countries the international firm has.

“It also demonstrates the opportunities we give people to grow and develop with us across the world,” he said. “The group contains top calibre lawyers who have demonstrated the market-leading advice and client service that we’re known for.”

The past year saw the firm making 36 partner level hires - seven in APAC, 15 in the US, 13 in the UK and Europe, and one in MEA.

Growth during the year also came from the hiring of a ten-partner insurance and litigation group from Troutman Sanders LLP, and the launch of offices in Chicago and Washington, DC.
