LAW firm Baker & McKenzie yesterday promoted 63 lawyers to its global partnership, including three members of its London office.

Banking and finance lawyer Lynn Rosell Rowley and corporate lawyers Emily Carlisle (pictured right) and Nick O'Donnell will become partners at the firm from 1 July, boosting the total number of equity partners at its New Bridge Street offices to 86.

Forty-four per cent of the promotions were made in the firm’s Asia Pacific practices, where 28 partners were elected, with 20 across its Europe, Middle East and Africa offices, nine in North America and six in Latin America.

Bakers’ global M&A group saw most promotions with 12 lawyers making partner, followed by tax, with nine, and dispute resolution, with eight.

Carlisle, who is currently on maternity leave, and Rosell Rowley are two of the firm’s 21 new female partners.
