Latham raids White & Case for capital markets push

Latham & Watkins’ London office is strengthening its private placement capability by taking on a partner from White & Case.

Rated capital markets partner Ian Clark is expected to begin at Latham on May 17 after resigning from White & Case yesterday (May 6) and which he will leave today.

He will join the private placement practice of partner Bernie Nelson, also formerly a lawyer with White & Case. Clark joined White & Case 17 years ago as an associate before becoming a partner in 1996. He has practiced in London since 1989.
