Dentons has made up seven partners in the UK in its latest 54-strong global promotions round.

The firm promoted 15 in the US, 14 in Canada, 14 in Europe and two in Singapore. Of the total promotions, 35 per cent (or 19) are female.

These figures are higher than last year, when the firm promoted 47 in a global round, with three new partners based in London.

The seven UKMEA promotions focused solely on London and Milton Keynes, with five and three promotions respectively. In London, the firm promoted Virginia Allen to the employment practice, Joseph Altendorff to corporate, Helen Bowdren to environment and Suhail Qureshi to tax.

In Milton Keynes, corporate lawyer Christopher Colclough and real estate lawyers David Payton and Greg Rigby were promoted.
