Paul Hastings makes third lateral hire in two months
Paul Hastings has hired corporate partner Duncan Woollard from King & Wood Mallesons. Woollard is expected to lead Paul Hastings’ private funds practice in London.
Woollard mainly works in private equity and fund structuring matters. He also raises investment funds in venture capital, infrastructure and real estate.
Paul Hastings has been pursuing a deliberate growth strategy since last year. In the past two months, two other partners, Luke McDougall and Mark Shepherd, were hired from Ashurst and DLA Piper, respectively. Last year, the firm convinced White & Case’s former technology and IP head Ashley Winton to join as well as Peter Schwartz, who was considered a finance heavyweight at Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy.
