Former Linklaters partner Lee Parker, who left the firm in the Summer, was voted into White & Case’s partnership yesterday (Monday 27 October), and is expected to join its London office in November.
Parker, who is dual UK and US qualified, has experience in a number of jurisdictions spanning Asia, Latin America and Spain. During his time at Linklaters, where he was a partner for 10 years, he headed up the Iberian finance practice.
The new recruit signals another step in the growth of White & Case’s capital markets group, which has swelled significantly since the beginning of the year.
In October alone, the practice took on six assistants, five of them from Linklaters. David Barwise, Tim Jeveons and Heather Pilley all joined as partners this year from Linklaters. Overall the practice area now contains nine partners and 31 associates.
