White & Case enters Romanian market

White & Case is the newest entrant into the Romanian legal market, having opened a Bucharest office with former Linklaters lawyer Todd Shollenbarger.

The Romania office is the firm’s 37th and will be led by Shollenbarger, who joins from the Bucharest office of a private equity house.

He will lead a team of 10 lawyers focused on real estate, finance, energy and private equity.

A team of Eastern European partners coordinated the office launch, including Rob Irving in Budapest, Michal Dlouhy in Bratislava and Witold Danilowicz in Warsaw.
