Moves of the month

  • White & Case boosted its City recruitment drive and funds credentials with London partner Shane McDonald joining its global banking practice, the firm’s sixth London lateral this year alone. McDonald’s previous role of senior vice president at fund manager Hudson Advisors allowed him to forge valuable links with private equity firm Lone Star Funds. He has experience of the financing of a large number of investments, including the acquisitions of non-performing loan portfolios and private equity portfolio companies. Dual-qualified to practise in England and Australia, he was previously an associate at Ropes & Gray and, before that, at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
