Ray Berg, UK Managing Partner at Osborne Clarke, commented:
"It takes a huge amount of dedication, skill and lot of hard work to achieve a promotion. Congratulations to all our newly promoted colleagues - they each thoroughly deserve their recognition.
"While we are pleased with the promotions, and we only promote colleagues based on merit, we do recognise that only a fifth of the partner promotions in this round are female. When I took over as Managing Partner I made the commitment to increase the diversity of our workforce across all levels. Today we have a number of initiatives, but we are on a journey and change doesn't happen overnight. We want to ensure that all our people have the same opportunity to meet and exceed their potential in a supportive and inclusive environment. We’re confident that, with time, our continuing efforts will help us to ingrain diversity into everything that we do."
