LG is set to promote three lawyers to its partnership, with corporate winning the lion’s share.

Karima Hudson and John Reed will both become partners in the firm’s corporate practice from 1 May, while Alex Ruffel will be made up in private capital from the same date.

The promotions mark a drop on last year’s found when LG made up five partners. That round represented the firm’s biggest batch of promotions in recent years and saw the wealth planning and real estate practices the biggest beneficiaries.

LG only made up two partners to partner in 2007, while no-one made the grade in either of the two previous years.

LG’s promotions come after the firm finalised details of its redundancy consultation earlier this month (16 April), with 18 support staff and 15 lawyers affected as a result of a consultation launched in January in response to the economic downturn.

The City firm managed to save four of the 37 jobs at risk as a result of its second redundancy consultation.

Nabarro announced its promotion round earlier today, also promoting three lawyers, with the London office gaining two new partners and Sheffield gaining one.

Ashurst yesterday (22 April) unveiled its promotions, with the City firm making up 10 to its global partnership. Berwin Leighton Paisner made up seven new partners earlier this week, including five in real estate, while Mishcon de Reya promoted two in the City.
