McDermotts loses telecoms star to Wilmer Cutler

McDermott Will & Emery’s London office has been left without a recognised telecoms expert after partner Stephanie Liston resigned to join the London office of Wilmer Cutler & Pickering. Tax partner Jonathan Ivinson is also leaving for the London office of US firm Hogan & Hartson to launch its tax team. Liston’s exit is a serious blow: since joining from Baker & McKenzie in 1999, she has been synonymous with the firm’s push into telecoms work. First reported on www.thelawyer.com/lawyernews 9 June
