In London, Reed Smith promoted EME corporate lawyer Oliver Harker; financial industry lawyers Simon Hugo and Elizabeth McGovern; entertainment and media lawyer Sachin Premnath; and transactional shipping lawyer Ioli Tassopoulou.

Figures in are down from last year, when the firm dedicated a quarter of its 24-strong cohort to its London base.

In the last five years, the firm has promoted heavily in financial services, followed by shipping and corporate.
