Sullivan & Cromwell announced its latest class of partners and four of the five promotions are women. The firm highlighted family friendly policies like flex time and maternity leave, which are aimed at recruiting and retaining more female lawyers. Three of the five promotions came in the area of corporate law which could be a sign of the firm’s belief that the worst of the economic slump is behind us.
The new partners are Whitney Chatterjee, Marion Leydier, Sarah Payne, Zena Yoslov, and S. Eric Wang.
Sullivan & Cromwell has approximately 700 lawyers in 12 offices, located in financial centers in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States.
