Washington DC-headquartered Crowell & Moring has bolstered its London office with a hire from fellow US firm Debevoise & Plimpton.
Corporate partner Joel Wheeler has joined the firm’s London office and will focus on cross-border public and private M&A.
Corporate chairman James Stuart said: “We’re focused on growing our corporate practice in London. Joel has a unique ability to understand a client’s long-term business objectives and he’s going to be an important part of our team.”

The firm also hired LG corporate partner Timothy Leeson in April and two other partners from Eversheds last year.
