Shearman grows with Freshfields pair

Shearman & Sterling has bolstered its London office with the hire of two partners from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. The employment of Freshfields structured finance partner Ian Harvey-Samuel and corporate partner Lois Moore follows a string of high-level partner losses at Shearman. Shearman’s London office has suffered several high-profile losses in the past 14 months, including partner Jonathan Coppin, who defected to Hogan & Hartson in July.
