Freshfields partner moves to Vinson & Elkins
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s finance partner Ian Frost has left the firm to move to Vinson & Elkins. Frost spent 10 years among the partner ranks at Freshfields, based mainly in London but working at one point in the firm’s Frankfurt office as well.
Vinson and Elkin’s London office is now located at 20 Fenchurch Street, sometimes referred to as thhe “Walkie Talkie”.
Frost’s exit comes just a week after the firm brought on high-yield partner Andy Hagan from Kirkland & Ellis. Kirkland was the destination firm of Frost’s fellow finance partner Michael Steele, after his exit last summer.
