Former Shearman finance head joins Taylor Wessing

Former Shearman & Sterling securitisation specialist Marke Raines has
resurfaced at the London office of Taylor Wessing.

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.
