Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice with the addition of Dominic Ross as a new partner in London.
"Our strategic ambition is to build a truly market leading public M&A practice in London, in line with our 2020 growth strategy," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Head of the Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice. "The importance of London as a financial and legal centre, and of English law for cross-border M&A deals, continues despite Brexit, and Dominic's arrival will further grow the service we provide to UK public companies across the spectrum of their corporate activities."
Ross, who joins the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, is focused on corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. He has broad experience advising both listed and private corporate clients on a wide variety of mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets and UK listing rule transactions, in particular large, complex deals involving UK public companies. Ross joins White & Case from Ashurst, where he was a partner, and brings more than 12 years' experience.
"Dominic is a technically excellent lawyer with a strong reputation in the market and established relationships with UK corporates and leading investment banks in London," said White & Case partner Allan Taylor, Regional Section Head, EMEA M&A/Corporate. "He strengthens our English law M&A team in London and will play a key role as we continue to build our UK plc practice and expand our public M&A and advisory capabilities."
Oliver Brettle, a member of the Firm's Executive Committee, said: "Our 2020 strategy includes a focus on profitable growth in London and in M&A. The arrival of Dominic represents further progress in both areas, and he joins a strong M&A team in both London and globally. Dominic is the fourth partner we have announced joining us laterally in London in 2018 to date, adding to the seven internal partner promotions effective 1 January 2018."
