Latham & Watkins has secured another heavyweight hire in London with the announcement that Tom Evans, a newly made up partner in Clifford Chance's (CC) private equity group, is joining the firm's corporate department.
Evans, who has been tipped as a rising star in the private equity field, follows David Walker, former global head of private equity at CC, who left to join Latham in May. The 2033-lawyer US firm has also made a series of other high profile lateral hires this year, including Dean Naumowicz, former head of derivatives at Norton Rose Fulbright, and Simon Bushell, former co-chair of corporate fraud at Herbert Smith Freehills.
