Linklaters boosts New York with Cravath swoop

Linklaters has continued its New York hiring spree, capturing capital markets specialist Adele Hogan from Cravath Swaine & Moore.

Hogan will join Linklaters partnership once registration formalities are completed. She moves across from Cravath’s New York office, where she was a senior attorney specialised in debt and equity offerings across the financial, telecommunications, oil and gas and healthcare industries.

Linklaters has been aggressively expanding its New York office over the last two years, most recently hiring partners Bindu Culas and Tom McGrath from Sullivan & Cromwell and Shearman & Sterling respectively.

Culas was previously a senior associate specialising in executive compensation at Sullivan, while McGrath was of counsel at Shearman and specialised in antitrust.

Combined with Hogan’s hire, the appointments bolster Linklaters’ New York office to 20 partners, 14 of whom joined in the last two years.
