W&C raids McDermott for London cap markets team

White & Case has raided McDermott Will & Emery for two capital markets partners to join its equity capital markets (ECM) team.

Andrew Croxford and Andrew Caunt have joined the firm’s team which is actively seeking further lateral hires in London and Europe.

Capital markets partner at White & Case, Tim Jeveons, commented: “The equity capital markets are in a period of sustained growth at the moment, driven in particular by the contiued strengthening of economic fundementals in the emerging markets.”

White & Case’s motivation to recruit in this area is due to the high number of emerging market companies seeking to list on the London Stock Exchange, Jeveons explained.

The London capital markets team will continue to grow with the arrival of securities partner Sven Krogius from the Moscow office.
