New space will support the firm’s growth strategy across practices, enabling a planned doubling of lawyer headcount in the City.
Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP has relocated to 100 Bishopsgate today.
Cadwalader’s new space is highly efficient and will enable the firm to double its current attorney headcount in the City from its current 65 lawyers.
“100 Bishopsgate is a brand-new, state-of-the-art office building in the heart of the City,” said Gregory Petrick, Cadwalader’s London managing partner. “The space and location are vibrant and energetic and reflect the spirit of our London office.”
Petrick also noted that 100 Bishopsgate is built with the highest sustainability standards – consistent with Cadwalader’s firmwide commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Cadwalader has been actively growing its market-leading practices over the past year and has also added white collar defense capabilities with the addition of partners Mark Beardsworth and Kevin Roberts. The firm expanded its real estate practice with partner Duncan Hubbard, fund formation with partner Michael Newell, fund finance with partner Samantha Hutchinson and capital markets with partner Matthew Duncan. In addition, Nathan Parker in finance and Joanna Valentine in corporate were promoted to partner in the firm’s last promotions round.
“We are bullish on the continued pre-eminence of the practice of law in London,” Petrick said. “Our lawyers have continued to serve our clients with great distinction during the challenges of the past 6-7 months, and we very much look forward to continuing that mission in our new London home.”
Cadwalader opened its first London office in 1997 to better serve the global financial markets. Over the years, the firm has served a broad array of financial services, corporate and funds clients across practices.
