Ropes & Gray to launch in London with two Freshfields finance partners

Ropes & Gray plans to launch a new office in London early next year, headed by two former finance partners at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. This will be the fourth new international office that Ropes & Gray has opened in the past two years, as the more than 1,000-attorney Boston-based law firm notes in a press release. Two of the firm's senior United States partners who specialize in private equity matters, David Chapin and Newcomb Stillwell, are expected to play a critical role in establishing the new London office, which will be headed by banking lawyers Maurice Allen and Mike Goetz.
