Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice with the addition of Ian Ivory as a partner in London.
"Technology remains an active sector for mergers & acquisitions as companies and private equity sponsors continue to be attracted to innovation in spite of the economic headwinds and more challenging deal financing conditions," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Head of the Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice. "Ian's experience advising leading companies in the technology sector on their cross-border transactions makes him a good fit for our M&A practice."
Ian is a corporate partner who advises clients in a range of business sectors and jurisdictions on international M&A, private equity and venture capital, with a particular focus on the technology sector. Ian joins White & Case from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, where he was a partner, co-leader of the firm's private equity initiative and leader of the EMEA private equity team.
White & Case partner Philip Broke, Regional Section Head EMEA M&A/Corporate 2, said: "Ian's experience advising on international M&A, private equity and venture capital and his focus on technology transactions will further strengthen our UK and EMEA M&A capabilities."
Partner Oliver Brettle, a member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, said: "The current economic challenges in the world are evident. That said we continue to look strategically to meet current and future client demand. With London retaining its status as a global financial centre and the prominence of English law in M&A globally we feel continuing to grow in key practices makes good business sense."
