White & Case targets deeper client relationships with new public company group launch

Firm rethinks career path for junior lawyers with new team focused on day-to-day advice for plcs

White & Case is launching a new public company advisory group in London, in a bid to broaden its client base by offering the full ‘life cycle’ of advice for companies going from private to public.

The new group, which will focus on providing company secretarial and corporate governance advice to plc clients, will work alongside the firm’s private company team, which is led by City corporate partner Emma Parr and was previously known as the portfolio company group.
