White & Case builds City private equity practice with Macfarlanes hire
White & Case has hired private equity partner Emmie Jones from Macfarlanes in London.
Aside from a brief stint as general counsel at investment firm Vision Capital in 2007, Jones has been at Macfarlanes since the outset of her career in 2003. She made partner at the firm in 2013.
Jones is not White & Case’s first private equity hire in London recently. Earlier this year the firm recruited partner Mike Weir from Jones Day. Last year the firm suffered the loss of private equity partner Katja Butler and private equity co-head Richard Youle to Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom.
