Slaughters unveils smallest City promotions round since 2013

Slaughter and May has unveiled its smallest City promotions round in three years, making up three new partners in London and one in Hong Kong.

The firm has made up three in London; dispute resolution lawyers Camilla Sanger and Holly Ware, alongside an addition to the City corporate team, Nicholas Pacheco. He joined the firm from Jones Day in 2010.

Corporate lawyer Clara Choi has joined the firm’s equity partnership in Hong Kong. She became a non-equity partner in 2014 alongside competition expert Natalie Yeung, who became a member of the equity last year.

Out of the four, just Choi and Sanger trained at the firm; a comparatively low proportion for Slaughters’ partnership.

This is the smallest promotions round for Slaughters since 2015 when four partners were also made up.

However, it is the smallest intake in the City for five years when the firm made up just two new partners.

Slaughters has announced bumper rounds in the last couple of years, seven in 2014, four in 2015 and 10 new joiners in 2016.

2016 was poor for gender diversity in which just one woman made the cut. However, since then, female representation has been much better, with three women appointed last year out of a total of seven.
