Ashurst has seen 22 partners leave its limited liability partnership since January -- equating to around 10 percent of its partnership as it stood at the beginning of the current financial year. The top 10 London law firm had 235 partners at the beginning of May. The number of departures is higher than the figure initially predicted in January, when it emerged that 10 partners were to leave Ashurst's equity over the course of this year in response to the economic downturn, including retirees.
