"My congratulations go to all of our new partners for their significant achievement," commented Duncan Weston, Managing Partner of CMS Cameron McKenna. "We announced in March that we were extending the role of Office Partner to London. We have appointed individuals to the role for a number of years outside of London, but this is the first year that nine senior associates in London have been promoted to Office Partner. All our new partners had to go a very tough and rigorous process of assessment. The range of their abilities is extremely impressive."
CMS Cameron McKenna's partnership structure comprises three tiers of membership. Senior associates enter at Office Partner level. Office Partners can then progress to an equity Gateway tier, which entitles those partners to a share of the firm's profit. After successfully completing a period in the Gateway, a partner can then be elected to join the firm's equity.
During 2009, other CMS firms have made 28 additional new partner promotions and lateral partner hires in Europe. Lateral appointments include, Dóra Petrányi who joined CMS Cameron McKenna as a Commercial partner in the firm's Budapest office. Dóra joined from Erős Ügyvédi Iroda, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey and has over 16 years of experience of TMT, IP law (including domain name and trademark matters), and competition matters.
