Gibson Dunn swoop for HSF capital markets duo boosts English law capability

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s appointment of Herbert Smith Freehills’ (HSF’s) capital markets duo Steve Thierbach and Chris Haynes is an important step in building the firm’s English law transactional capability.

Thierbach, who was HSF’s global markets chief, is one of the City’s most established capital markets lawyers. His hire, along with corporate partner Haynes, comes as part of Gibson Dunn’s wider corporate play in London.
