Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Practice and Global Real Estate Industry Group with the addition of John Cahill as a partner. Cahill will spend his time between the Firm's New York and Hong Kong offices.

"Real estate opportunities in Asia continue to present dynamic propositions to sophisticated investors," said John Reiss, White & Case's Global Head of M&A. "Despite market headwinds, our clients continue to capitalize on real estate opportunities across the region, making Asia a strategically important market for our M&A team's further growth. The addition of John fits squarely with this strategy. His depth of experience will provide invaluable support."

Cahill advises borrowers, sponsors and institutional investors throughout Asia and the United States on financing and M&A for real estate investments, with particular experience in the back-leverage market for real asset focused funds and other investment vehicles. He also brings market-leading experience in real estate focused private capital participants across Asia.

"John is an impactful addition to our global real estate platform and our Asia offering," said Vivian Tsoi, White & Case's Regional Section Head for Asia-Pacific M&A/Corporate. "His international practice and experience in the back-leverage market further enhances our position as a leading adviser for sophisticated investors across the full spectrum of matters in the real  estate sector. We are delighted to welcome him to our team."

Cahill's arrival continues the expansion of White & Case's Global M&A capabilities, following the recent addition of Taurie Zeitzer as Co-Head of the Firm's Global Private Equity Industry Group in New York and Patrick Sarch, who rejoined the Firm as its Head of UK Public M&A in London. Cahill's addition also continues to build on the growth of the Firm's global investment funds capabilities, following the recent arrival of funds partners Omar Hemady in Boston, Phillip Sacks in Dubai and Emily Brown in London.
