Ashurst has asked a number of partners to leave by the end of the current financial year, despite already seeing nearly 30 partner exits since May 2009. The top 10 U.K. firm asked fewer than 10 partners to leave shortly before Christmas, with most set to depart by the end of April. The total does not include retirees, such as London corporate partners David Kershaw and Alan Kitchin, and most come on top of the 27 partners who have left Ashurst's limited liability partnership since May 1.
