Two KWM litigation partners hired by Covington
Covington & Burling has hired a litigation duo from King & Wood Mallesons, including Craig Pollack, head of litigation at KWM, along with Louise Freeman, a partner in the firm’s litigation practice.
Pollack started his career at legacy SJ Berwin, and will join former KWM disputes partners Alex Leitch and Greg Lascalles, who joined Covington earlier this year. A number of KWM partners have moved on to new firms following KWM’s failed attempt to secure a merger partner for its EUME arm.
Freeman has been a partner at KWM since 2008, and joined the firm from legacy Herbert Smith, where she was an associate.
