Brown Rudnick scoops Addleshaws insolvency partner

US firm Brown Rudnick has snared Addleshaw Goddard‘s former head of corporate restructuring and insolvency group to join its London office.

Louise Verrill, who joins the US firm as a partner, is experienced in EC regulatory matters and has advised on a number of primary and secondary insolvency cases across Europe.

Verrill commented: “I am very excited. I really want to focus on international insolvency and this is where Brown Rudnick’s strengths are. In the States the firm has a large hedge fund advisory practice. This is where the focus is here.”

Verrill added that the restructuring team, which currently consists of two partners and one associate, will be recruiting heavily during the next year in the Capital.

Addleshaws were unavailable for comment.
