Linklaters has continued to strengthen its US operations with the hire of bankruptcy partner Amy Edgy from Jones Day in Washington DC. She is the firm’s first DC bankruptcy practitioner and takes the firm’s partner headcount in the city to six. The firm’s US head Tom Shropshire said: “Amy’s credentials, experience and understanding of this space will further enhance our capacity to advise clients in high-value cross-border restructuring matters.”

DLA Piper’s current interim co-chair Janet Legrand (pictured) has been appointed as an honorary Queen’s Counsel, the only solicitor among the seven appointed this year. She was described by the Ministry of Justice as a pioneer in promoting social mobility and enhancing the role of women within the law. She was the firm’s senior partner and chair from 2009 to 2012 and was re-appointed to the role on an interim basis late last year, following the resignation of the incumbent Juan Picon.
