It’s the firm’s largest new partner class in over 10 years.

Cravath, Swaine & Moore has promoted 11 lawyers to partner. This bumper crop is significantly larger than in recent years: last year saw six promotions, while 2018 saw three.

This year’s promotions comprise Michael Arnold, Daniel Cerqueira, Matthew Jones, Matthew Kelly and Andrew Wark in the corporate practice; Helam Gebremariam, David Korn and Brittany Sukiennik in the litigation group; Heather Benjamin and Alexandra Denning in the trust and estates department; and Matthew Bobby in the executive benefits and compensation practice.

Corporate practice aside, the promotions broaden the racial and gender profile of Cravath’s equity partnership. Four of the new partners are women; two of those partners are Black. This is part of a longer-term trend: in 2018, all three lawyers promoted to partner were women.

All 11 lawyers will become partners effective 1 Jan 2021.
