Sonnenschien gains 100 from Thacher Proffitt
22 Dec 2008by WWL Editorial
A group of approximately 100 lawyers, including 40 partners, from Thacher Proffitt & Wood LLP has departed for Sonnenschien Nath & Rosenthal LLP, increasing Sonnenschien's headcount to approximately 800 lawyers.
This follows the dissolution of Thacher Proffitt, which began after 31 December 2008.
The lawyers specialise in structured finance, real estate, corporate, litigation and dispute resolution.
The departure includes prominent members from the firm and the former chairman. Chair of the dispute resolution practice group John Woods, who features in The International Who's Who of Shipping & Maritime Lawyers, was also a part of the move.
