White & Case has continued its London investment with the capture of Linklaters project finance partner Caroline Miller Smith.
Miller Smith focuses on infrastructure transactions, including PPP/PFI, renewable energy assets and defence projects. She is the fifth partner hire the firm has announced in the last four months following the arrival of David Cook from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, and Jacqueline Evans and Lee Cullinane from Mayer Brown (16 December 2010).
Global projects finance chief Art Scavone said: “Caroline’s addition demonstrates our commitment to solidifying our position as one of the world’s leading project finance law firms. Importantly, Caroline’s arrival adds to the already substantial infrastructure and renewable energy experience we can offer clients, particularly in key growth markets such as the Middle East.”
London executive partner Oliver Brettle added: “It’s a testament to the quality of the clients, lawyers and global reach of White & Case that we’re able to attract partners of Caroline’s calibre.”
