More Clifford Chance partner exits in Germany
Clifford Chance lost two more partners in Germany, this pair specializing in energy law, when they departed for White & Case. The news follows yesterday's departure of former German corporate head Arndt Stendel to Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy. That news came barely a month following the firm's former co-head of private equity Oliver Felsenstein and private equity partner Burc Hesse departure for Latham & Watkins.
The shakeup continues after last years appointment of managing partner Peter Dieners. Clifford Chance conducted a review of its German operations, which resulted in the expectation last Decemebr that up to nine partners would be asked to leave the firm.
