Canadian firm McCarthy Tetrault’s London office has been hit by the departure of two partners who have left for White & Case.
McCarthy Tetrault’s London managing partner Glen Ireland and Tanneke Heersche, co-head of the firm’s global mining group, are joining White & Case’s energy, infrastructure, project and asset finance group.
