Raines left Shearman in March 2005. He said he had had “a career break” of
just over a year before deciding to return to the law.
The move follows the hire last month of Graham Wedlake, a former Barlow
Lyde & Gilbert partner, who left US firm Winston & Strawn after less than a
year to join Taylor Wessing.
Raines becomes head of securitisation at Taylor Wessing.
