London law firm Linklaters has transferred a mergers and acquisitions partner to New York, following the lead of a Magic Circle rival.
The transfer of Nick Rees is part of Linklaters’ effort to build up its transactional practice in the New York office, Legal Week reports. The law firm recruited a 16-lawyer litigation team from White & Case last year as part of its aggressive expansion strategy here.
With the latest move, Linklaters’ New York office now has more that 130 lawyers.
Last month Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer transferred two partners to its New York office.
