Linklaters builds New York restructuring practice

Linklaters has bolstered its New York restructuring practice with the hire of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan partner Mark Palmer.

Last year the firm recruited a litigation team from Shearman & Sterling, led by bankruptcy litigation specialist Paul Wickes.

Linklaters then augmented this raid with the hire of Latham & Watkins restructuring and insolvency partner Marty Flics last September. Palmer will join Flics in a global group headed up by London partner Robert Elliot.
