Olswang raids White & Case to bolster TMT team

Olswang has raided White & Case to secure litigation partner Richard Bamforth as the UK firm ramps up its technology and media offering.

Bamforth, who specialises in international arbitration and litigation, joins Olswang on Monday 4 April.

He leaves White & Case after nearly 10 years at the firm. It is understood that Olswang’s technology and media focus was a key attraction for Bamforth.

The departure leaves White & Case with nine partners and a total of 50 lawyers in the London litigation group.
