Linklaters New York hires second partner in two weeks

November 5, 2015 Linklaters has hired its second partner in as many weeks in its New York office. Just seven days after its previous hire, the firm has brought on Margot Schonholtz from Willkie Farr & Gallagher. Schonholtz will head the firm's restructuring and insolvency practice in the Big Apple.

Schonholtz spent five years at Willkie Farr. Prior to her time there, she spent 10 years as a partner between Kaye Scholer and Clifford Chance. Schonholtz specialises in representing leading institutional creditors, agents to syndicated lending groups on debt restructuring, asset sale transactions, complex loan workouts and insolvency matters.

Last week the firm brought on Douglas Tween to be chief of its US cartel and government investigations practice. Tween was previously litigation head at Baker & McKenzie's New York office.
