Addleshaw Goddard has announced the promotion of nine Partners from across its UK and International offices. 

The promotions include: 

These promotions follow the lateral hires of 17 Partners across the Firm's London, Scotland, Leeds, Manchester, Asia and GCC offices this financial year, with 13 hires since the start of January 2018.

These hires have significantly bolstered the Firm's Real Estate, Construction, Corporate, Banking, Financial Services, Financial Regulatory, Corporate Crime and Transport teams.

Charles Penney, Senior Partner of AG, stated: "I am delighted to congratulate all of those who have been promoted to Partner. Each of our new Partners has already made a strong contribution to the Firm, developing and growing our client relationships through their efforts across their specialist disciplines and sectors, and I hope they will play even more important roles as new Partners in helping us to achieve our ambitions."

The volume of lateral Partner hires this year, coupled with the Firm's Scottish merger, is the catalyst for a new growth phase for AG, which continues to invest in the development and training of all its staff, creating new and innovative roles through both its TST and Innovation and Legal Technology Teams.

Last year the Firm promoted five to Partner across its international network of offices.
