Addleshaw Goddard has hired a White & Case partner in a bid to grow its trade and commodity expertise.
Claire Denison will join as a partner on 1 February 2010, bringing with her more than two decades of experience advising lenders, sponsors and investment funds while at White & Case and before that as a partner at DLA Piper.
Head of Addleshaws’ 30-partner finance and projects division Richard Papworth said: “Claire’s versatility, particularly in the way she’s built a trade and commodity practice, is critical in the current climate and this is a specialist niche we’ll be looking to exploit.”
A spokesperson at White & Case said: “We can confirm that Claire is leaving to join Addleshaw Goddard and will leave at the end of the year. We wish her well for the future”.
