Finance view – White & Case reinvents its London banking practice with some success

Madeleine Farman and Victoria Young assess the firm’s reboot after a tough post-2008 run

Traditionally a strong lender side practice in London built around relationships with clients like Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, White & Case’s banking team has moved on since the loss of a four-partner team to Latham & Watkins back in 2010. The exit of then co-head of banking Chris Kandel and his team was a significant hit to a practice that had been established at the peak of the 2000s credit binge as one of the City’s top leveraged shops.
