White & Case Promotes 26 to Counsel and 15 to Local Partner

Global law firm White & Case LLP has promoted 26 lawyers to counsel and 15 to local partner with effect from January 1, 2017.

"These promotions reflect the quality and achievement of our lawyers and the truly global and diverse nature of our Firm," said White & Case Chairman Hugh Verrier. "They embrace 21 offices and 13 global practices, and exemplify the way in which White & Case provides worldwide support to clients on their most important, complex, cross-border legal challenges."

In addition to the internal promotions, White & Case has hired eight counsel and seven local partners during 2016.

At White & Case, counsel is a role for senior lawyers with significant experience in a particular practice area. The title is used across the Firm, in all offices, as an alternative career path to partnership but does not preclude consideration for promotion to partner.

The position of local partner is offered in select White & Case regions and locations where it is common market practice. At present this includes offices in Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. The title of local partner is a recognized career step towards admission into Firm partnership.
