Linklaters makes further gains in NY hiring spree

Linklaters has continued its New York hiring spree with the appointment of two partners from US firms Sullivan & Cromwell and Shearman & Sterling.

Bindu Culas and Tom McGrath join as partners in Linklaters’ rapidly expanding New York office.

Culas was previously a senior associate with Sullivan & Cromwell specialising in executive compensation, while McGrath was of counsel with Shearman & Sterling specialising in antitrust.

Their appointments are the latest in a string of hires within New York, bolstering the total number of partners in the office to 20 – 13 of which have joined in the last two years.

The arrivals of Culas and McGrath also follow the firm’s strategy to develop its corporate transactional service in New York, as well as extending its employment and competition practices.
