Michelmores has appointed six new female Partners and six Senior Associates, bringing the female partnership level to 48% and the current proportion of female Senior Associates to 73%.
Commenting on this year’s promotions, Tim Richards, Managing Partner said:
“I am pleased to announce our new Partners and Senior Associates, and to congratulate them all on achieving this significant milestone in their career. Each of our new Partners and Senior Associates has demonstrated their ongoing commitment to the Firm, as well as our ambition and values. I look forward to seeing the impact that their commitment, drive and energy creates at Michelmores.
“In 2018 we set ourselves a target for our partnership to be at least 30% female, after surpassing this with our round of partner promotions in 2022, I am delighted that our female partnership now far exceeds this figure. This is a positive step towards gender parity within the Partnership at the Firm since the launch of our Women@Michelmores initiative in 2016, yet there is still work to be done. We remain committed to fostering an inclusive culture and continuing to improve the gender balance across our Firm.”
