Shearman suffers double Brussels exits

Shearman & Sterling’s European network has been hit by the defection of two Brussels antitrust partners to Arnold & Porter. Shearman’s Brussels office has been left with no permanent partners after Annette Schild and Silvio Cappellari left for Arnold & Porter along with counsel Stephanie Birmann. ­Shearman’s Brussels office now has just two associates, with competition partner Hans Jurgen Meyer-Lindemann splitting his time between Düsseldorf and Brussels.
