Greenberg Traurig Maher (GTM) has hired Dundas & Wilson partner Ewan Robertson to bulk up its corporate capabilities.
Robertson focuses on transactional and projects work. He brings the total number of lawyers in the US firm’s London office to 20.
GTM chairman Paul Maher said: “Bringing on board an experienced transactional specialist like Ewan is an important step in the continuing strategic growth of our London office.”
In 2008 The Lawyer reported on Robertson leading a team from Dundas that advised Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) on its acquisition of Slough Heat & Power (14 January 2008).
Last month The Lawyer reported on GTM hiring Mayer Brown IP partner and London general counsel Stephen Gare and Watson Farley competition partner Stephen Tupper (10 September 2009).

Are Greenberg paying New York rates in London?
Unsuitable or offensive?

Seems like anyone with a 'name' continues to elude GTM or is it that Maher cannot bring himself to hire one since that would risk Maher being shown to be wearing the emperor's new clothes?

2009 Year to date Mergermarket stats for all partners hired by GTM to date, at any firm, in any market, at any value - 0. If you were a US GT "shareholder" wouldn't you be wondering what the hell is going on? If it was as easy as hiring a bunch of partners from tertiary law firms in one of the most competitive legal markets in the world don't you think everyone would do it? From Albany to Orlando, Tampa to Tallahassee, Tysons Corner to White Plains and Vegas to Fort Lauderdale where is your money going!

Jealousy is prevalent throughout all these messages, I wonder why?The belief that consistently writing comments exclaiming some irrational thought as to why GTM will fail, will give the firm some negative publicity and consequently inflict damage upon the firm is ignorant. I hate to break it to you gentlemen but this firm will continue to succeed regardless of a few baseless comments.
