Sophie Eyre and Helen Gavin-Brown, of Bird & Bird’s London office, have been appointed Partner following the firm’s partnership review.
Sophie, who is a member of the firm’s International Dispute Resolution Group, has been with Bird & Bird since its merger with Lane & Partners in 2008. Helen has been with Bird & Bird more than six years and is part of the Corporate team.
David Kerr, Bird & Bird’s CEO, commented: “These appointments are well-deserved and reflect their sustained delivery of outstanding client service. We welcome Sophie and Helen to the partnership.”
These two appointments bring the total number of internal promotions to 14 within two years, alongside 15 lateral partner hires in the same period. From 1 May, when these appointments take effect, Bird & Bird will have more than 230 partners.
