Legal Week research into recent recruitment trends by international firms in London has found the group brought in over 20% more partners in 2015 than the year before, with total partner numbers climbing by 6% across the group year-on-year.

Our analysis of the hiring activity of 36 primarily US outfits found the group made a total of 110 partner-level lateral hires in 2015, compared with 90 in 2014. The hires helped push up overall London headcount to new highs, with nine firms now housing at least 65 partners in London and Latham joining the elite band of firms in the group numbering at least 200 UK lawyers, excluding partners.
