US White & Case continues to expand its presence in the City

WALL STREET law firm White & Case has promoted 35 lawyers into its partnership, with seven in London reaching the top.

The promotions, which take effect from the start of next year, will see the firm welcome seven London counsel and associates into its partnership.

White & Case, which is based in New York, said the promotions represent continued investment in its City office. The firm has already hired four new partners this year and transferred one partner from New York to London.

A further 16 lawyers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa have been promoted.

“Our new partners are all outstanding lawyers, with diverse experience and expertise,” said White & Case chairman Hugh Verrier.
