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.
