White & Case takes on M&A trio

White & Case Feddersen is expanding its corporate practice as it takes on an M&A team in its Hamburg office

Partners Christian Jacobs, Günther Kahlert and Boris Kläsener all join from the M&A boutique firm Huth Dietrich Hahn.
Jacobs said that the move to White &Case is driven by client demand for a global capability.
White & Case executive committee member Sebastian Kühl said: "In the last 12 months, White & Case increased its number of M&A deals by 33 per cent, a statistic which shows the firm has bucked the trend for decreasing M&A activity."
