Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its market-leading Global Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Practice with the addition of Keith Hallam as a partner in New York.

"Keith is one of the most prolific M&A dealmakers in the US market," said White & Case Chair, Heather McDevitt. "Building on the recent arrival of Taurie Zeitzer as Co-Head of our Global PE Industry Group, Keith's addition further demonstrates our commitment to expanding our top-flight capabilities in the United States and across our Global M&A Practice. Keith and Taurie will be working together with all our partners and will play an integral role in enhancing our best in class service for PE sponsors and our other clients."

Hallam brings a preeminent M&A and activism defense practice, having advised on many significant, multibillion-dollar transactions and activist defense situations in recent years. His work spans a broad range of industries, including consumer products, energy, financial institutions, healthcare, industrials and technology.

"As the M&A markets begin to rebound, the addition of another extremely seasoned and collegial partner is perfectly timed for our global practice," said John Reiss, White & Case's Global Head of M&A. "I look forward to Keith immediately assisting our team and our global M&A clients to execute upon our rapidly growing deal pipeline."

Zeitzer added: "We're extremely enthusiastic about Keith's arrival and what it means for the continued growth of our Global M&A and PE capabilities. I have known Keith for years, and have always been impressed by his outstanding ability to find creative and commercial solutions for his clients. White & Case is a true one-stop shop for complex M&A and PE transactions, and with Keith's addition, we are further well positioned to guide market participants through the full spectrum of deal structures."

Hallam's arrival continues the growth of White & Case's Global M&A Practice and Global PE Industry Group this year, following the recent notable additions of Zeitzer in New York in January; and Patrick Sarch, who re-joined the Firm as Head of UK Public M&A in London in February.
