Arnold & Porter has boosted its London office with the hire of Geneva-based Winston & Strawn corporate partner Carl Liederman.
Liederman, who starts on 9 June, will lead Arnold & Porter’s European corporate practice from London.
The firm has pledged to expand its London presence and embarked on a series of lateral hires this year.
Since the beginning of 2008 the office has taken on WilmerHale employment chief Henry Clinton-Davis (The Lawyer, 8 May 2008) and former Gap and Body Shop general counsel Paula Levitan (The Lawyer, 21 January)
