Nabarro is promoting three lawyers to its partnership, with the London office gaining two new partners and Sheffield gaining one.

The promotions round represents the second annual decline in new partner numbers for Nabarro, after the firm made up five partners in 2008 and seven the year before.

Nick Lloyd will become a partner in the firm’s real estate dispute resolution practice in London from 1 May, with Lukas Rootman becoming a partner in the Sheffield environmental group from the same date.

Barrister Emerson Holmes will become a partner in the London construction and engineering practice as soon as he requalifies as a solicitor, which the firm expects to happen in late May. None of the three new partners trained at Nabarro.

Senior partner Simon Johnston said: “These promotions continue our strategy of developing Nabarro’s specialist practice strengths through a combination of lateral hires and organic growth from within the firm.”

“They have each shown skill, discipline and determination in developing their practice areas and client relationships and, I have no doubt, will make great additions to our expanding partnership and to the realisation of our strategic business objectives.”

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