Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe is continuing its acquisitive year in France with the hire of Coudert Brothers arbitration consultant William Craig as senior counsel.
Craig was formerly a partner at Coudert Frères for 30 years before becoming a consultant at the firm. He is the third Coudert lawyer to join Orrick in France this year, following the appointments of George Yates and Philippe de Rincazaux.
The appointment is designed to boost Orrick’s European arbitration practice. Craig joins an international team of 50 lawyers including a number of other former Coudert partners.
Orrick recently finalised its merger agreement with 18 partners of French independent Rambaud Martel, creating a 100-lawyer Paris office with a significant presence across a range of practice areas including litigation and arbitration.
