Proskauer Boosts London Office With McDermott Hire

January 29, 2008 New York's Proskauer Rose has hired William Yonge as partner for its newly opened London office, taking him from McDermott Will & Emery's financial services team. Yonge has been at McDermott since 2003 and the firm made him partner in 2006. The latest move means McDermott has lost more than a dozen partners in London during the last 18 months. The more notable departures include intellectual property head Larry Cohen, who joined Latham & Watkins, employment head Fraser Younson, who moved to Berwin Leighton Paisner, and litigator and former managing partner John Reynolds, who joined White & Case.
