Ahead of three-way merger, global firm elevates 48 to partnership
Less than a week before the three-way merger between CMS Cameron McKenna, Nabarro, and Olswang goes live, the triumvirate has announced partner promotions for 2017.

A total of 48 lawyers have been elevated to the triumvirate’s partnership, with CMS lawyers accounting for the majority at 44. Nabarro and Olswang, which merge with CMS on 1 May, promote two each.

Penelope Warne, CMS UK senior partner, said that offering opportunities for progression for all of the firm’s employees is a key priority for the business.
