Clifford Chance recruits Freshfields’ Vienna arbitration head
Clifford Chance has hired Moritz Keller from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, where he served as the Vienna head of arbitration. He will join the firm’s Frankfurt office.
Clifford Chance Germany managing partner Peter Dieners stated that Keller is a perfect complement to the German team and called him a “trusted arbitration and litigation specialist.”
The loss on Freshfields’ part comes on the heels of last week’s departure of high-yield partner Ward McKimm to Shearman & Sterling as well as that of London-based restructuring veteran Nicholas Segal to Erskine Chambers earlier this week.
