The London office of White & Case could be moving lock, stock and barrel to Canary Wharf. The US firm is understood to be considering a move away from its Moorgate base to an office in either Canary Wharf or the City. A source at the firm said: "The position is still being negotiated. We're looking at a building in each place. We've just started discussions." For a finance-focused firm such as White & Case, a location near banking and financial institutions could be appropriate. Barclays Capital, Credit Suisse First Boston and Morgan Stanley are just some of the banks with offices in Canary Wharf. The City is still favoured by most of the legal elite, though Allen & Overy has a team at Canary Wharf and Clifford Chance will move in next year. The only firm to have its entire office based in Canary Wharf is US firm Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom.
