Boutique corporate an tech firm hires former Wragges senior partner

July 11, 2011 Former Wragge & Co senior partner John Crabtree has left to become the chairman of boutique corporate and technology firm White & Black.

White & Black managing partner Phil Riman said Crabtree will have a client-facing role: “John’s role will be about relationship building”. Riman added: “When we set up the firm in 2007 our proposition was to be a niche corporate firm with a focus on technology. John’s arrival will help us on the heavy-lifting corporate work. A lot of work we have now is technology buyouts, which involves a lot of large-scale, multijurisdictional issues.”

Crabtree was senior partner at Wragges between 1993 and 2003. He left the firm in 2004, and has held a number of directorships since.
