White & Case makes litigation play with double hire in London

August 7, 2018 White & Case has bolstered its London litigation team with the hires of international arbitration partner David Robertson from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and commercial litigator Steven Baker from Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft.

Baker just joined Cadwalader in late 2016 from Bird & Bird. He specializes in communications, banking, technology, commodities, and financial services.

Oliver Brettle, a member of White & Case’s global executive committee expressed that the addition of these “leading partners” is part of the firm’s 2020 strategy to “take the fight” to magic circle firms.
