The London office gained two new partners through the July promotions; Jessica Eden and David Jamieson. Eden trained at Herbert Smith Freehills and has been with the firm since 2013. She specialises in tax investigations and disputes. Jamieson was an associate at Berwin Leighton Paisner before joining the firm in 2012 and is skilled in indirect tax and cross-border transactions.

Simone Bridges was promoted to partner in the Sydney office in July. She specialises in indirect tax, cross-border tax issues and managing controversy for multinationals. Bridges has also been listed in International Tax Review’s Women in Tax Leaders guide for two years in a row.

Kirill Vikulov became a partner in the Moscow office in the July promotions. He has been with the firm since 2007 and before joining the firm was a tax consultant at PwC. Vikulov has advised on tax issues for major oil and gas projects and focuses on providing tax advice for M&As.

With these latest promotions, the firm now has 1,600 partners worldwide. Forty per cent of this year’s promotions so far have been women and more than 400 partners at the firm are female.
