White & Case Promotes 21 to Counsel and 21 to Local Partner

Global law firm White & Case LLP has promoted 21 lawyers to counsel and 21 lawyers to local partner.

“Spanning 21 offices and nine practice groups, these promotions reflect the truly diverse and global nature of our Firm while recognizing the exceptional ability and commitment to client service this group has demonstrated,” said White & Case Chairman Hugh Verrier. “I am confident they will make a valuable contribution to White & Case and our clients as we continue to make progress toward achieving the goals of our 2020 strategy.”

In addition to the internal promotions, White & Case has hired 14 counsel and nine local partners during 2018.

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 a common market practice. At present this position applies to offices in Asia-Pacific, Central & Eastern Europe, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. The title of local partner is a recognized career step toward admission into Firm partnership.
