White & Case hires bolster banking and structured finance

White & Case has continued its appointments frenzy, hiring banking and structured finance specialists from DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary and Taylor Wessing.

Partner Claire Denison moves across from DLA Piper, while Emma Menzies joins as of counsel from Taylor Wessing. They will join the London banking and structured finance team in December, bolstering the team to 15 partners.

The hires follow appointments including a private finance initiative team from Kilpatrick Stockton’s downsizing London office and five lawyers from Haarmann Hemmelrath, to launch White & Case’s Munich presence.

White & Case said the London team was on track to report a 35 per cent increase in revenues during 2005-06.
