Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft is growing its financial restructuring practice in New York with a Weil Gotshal & Manges partner.
Adam Rogoff is the second restructuring partner to leave Weil Gotshal's practice in New York in as many months, after Corinne Ball jumped ship for Jones Day Reavis & Pogue (The Lawyer, 14 May). Rogoff's practice focuses on debtors and creditors in retail restructurings, asset-based financing and property acquisitions and dispositions. Cadwalader managing partner Robert Link said: "Adam's experience representing debtors will augment the practice and create synergies with other firm strongholds." Rogoff brings with him two of his largest cases, the Chapter 11 cases of high street US retailers Bradley's and Casual Male Corp. He has been a partner in the Weil Gotshal business finance and restructuring practice for five years. In April, Cadwalader New York partners David Frauman and Ken Coleman resigned to join Allen & Overy (The Lawyer, 30 April).
