Latham continues European expansion with Munich hire
Latham & Watkins has hired banking partner Thomas Weitkamp from Clifford Chance. He is set to join the firm’s Munich branch
Weitkamp joined Clifford Chance in 2003 and made partner in 2012. His experience is in leveraged finance, restructuring, and lending. The US firm’s Germany managing partner Oliver Felsenstein praised Weitkamp, calling him “hard-working, dynamic, and entrepreneurial.”
Weitkamp’s recruitment is the firm’s second hire from a magic circle firm in Germany this year. In March Latham recruited Düsseldorf-based partner Tobias Larisch. Outside Germany, Latham also snapped up London-based financial regulation partner Carl Fernandes from Linklaters just last week.
