Clifford Chance’s global head of anti-trust Steve Newborn has defected to the Washington office of Weil Gotshal & Manages taking a team of three partners with him. Newborn, one of Clifford Chance’s last remaining US super-pointers, moves to Weil Gotshal with James Egan, John Scribner and Laura Wilkinson.
Newborn, who will become co-head of Weil’s global competition group said: “The addition of our group to Weil Gotshal's already well-established, high-quality and full-service antitrust group creates a truly preeminent practice."
A Clifford Chance spokesperson said, “"We wish them the very best of luck in the future at their new firm. We have a highly capable antitrust team of six partners and over 40 lawyers in the US, we remain nationally preeminent in the area of antitrust and fair trade litigation, and we have a leading global practice with 30 partners and over 120 lawyers."
