Kaye Scholer has hired two litigation partners from Winston & Strawn’s New York office.
Vincent Sama joins Kaye Scholer as chair of the securities and derivative litigation group and co-chair of the complex commercial litigation team, while Catherine Schumache joins as a partner.
The departures come amid reports that Winston & Strawn has made offers to three-quarters of partners at troubled US litigation outfit Howrey, though neither firm would comment on the matter.
Kaye Scholer’s co-managing partner Barry Willner said: “Their handling of high-stakes, complicated litigations for companies and directors will enable us to significantly expand the scope of this practice in New York.”
“We’re thrilled to join Kaye Scholer’s top notch litigation practice and its outstanding group of litigators, who’ll complement our own practice,” said Sama.
