Charlie Jacobs, Senior Partner, Linklaters, said: “Our strong and talented cohort of new partners is a reflection of our strategy of attracting, retaining and investing in the best lawyers from across our global network.

“Last year we acknowledged that we needed to do better to meet the Partnership’s gender target, so it gives me great pleasure to see us exceed this in 2018. We will work hard to keep up the momentum on achieving this, and our other diversity goals. They are absolutely central to the Firm’s strategy and ambitions.”
