Global law firm White & Case LLP continues to strengthen its Global Commercial Litigation Practice by appointing Hannah Field-Lowes as a new partner in London. Field-Lowes joins White & Case from Weil, Gotshal & Manges, where she was co-head of the International Dispute Resolution department in London. Hannah also played key roles in the firm's diversity efforts as Vice-Chair of the Weil Global Diversity Committee and Head of London Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
"Hannah's appointment strengthens our disputes capabilities in London, as we grow the practice globally in line with our 2020 vision," said White & Case partner Glenn Kurtz, Head of the Global Commercial Litigation Practice. "Hannah's extensive experience advising on complex cross-border disputes reinforces our commitment to providing our clients with the strategic counsel and execution they require."
Field-Lowes has represented clients in contentious matters across the private equity, financial and technology industries. As previously, her practice at White & Case will focus on managing financial, intellectual property, shareholder and general commercial disputes, particularly breaches of contract, misrepresentation, jurisdictional issues, regulatory investigations and contentious tax matters.
"Hannah's wealth of experience advising multinational companies in complicated shareholder and M&A disputes, technology and tax litigation will enhance our existing offering to our private equity and technology clients when they engage in strategically important litigation", said White & Case partner Charles Balmain, Regional Section Head, EMEA Disputes.
Oliver Brettle, London-based member of the Firm's Executive Committee, said: "London's status as a global financial centre and the need for expertise in English law as it applies to cross-border dispute resolution, are key reasons why the expansion of our disputes practice globally, and in London in particular, is a crucial part of the Firm's 2020 strategy."
