Senior management committee member and disputes partner, Jason Yardley, from White & Case, has joined Jenner & Block’s London office.
On February 20th, Yardley will step into his new position after having served on the global partnership committee for White & Case. This marks yet another lateral partner hire made by Jenner & Block after opening its London office in 2015.
According to the managing partner of Jenner & Block’s London office, Charlie Lightfoot, the firm is looking to grow in a steady manner and thus has taken a “sensible and patient approach” to recruitment. Yet, he says the firm is now looking to continue expanding his office so that Jenner & Block will have about 20 lawyers by 2018 and 40 lawyers within the next five years.
