Germany, United Kingdom

Commenting on the promotions, Fieldfisher Managing Partner, Michael Chissick, said:

"I want to congratulate all of our new partners.  It is easy to become focussed on COVID-19 – understandably at the moment – but that should not detract from their achievements and reaching this milestone.

There is always more to do and we continue to invest in developing our talent organically."
