Salans consumer finance partner Bill McCaffrey is set to surface at CMS Cameron McKenna after originally resigning to join US firm Locke Lord.
McCaffrey was one of seven partners who quit Salans in November as part of the Texan firm’s London re-launch in a raid spearheaded by former Salans global managing partner Roger Abrahams (7 November 2011).
McCaffrey focuses on legal and regulatory matters related to loans, instalment credit, leasing and asset finance and was a partner at Salans for seven years after joining from in-house roles at Abbey National, First National Bank and Wagon Finance.
Camerons financial services and products head Paul Edmondson said in a statement: “Bill brings a wealth of experience to the team. His legal and in-house experience combined means our clients will benefit from his extensive sector insight.”
McCaffrey said: “What attracted me to the firm was its client spread and excellent reputation in the financial services sector. I look forward to working with the team and our clients.”
Abrahams has already joined Locke Lord as a consultant alongside former Salans global board chair Stephen Finch and former Salans London real estate head Daniel Polden. A further five partners are listed on the US firm’s website as already active in the City office, of which one held the role of consultant while at Salans.
