Leveraging its reputation as a ‘powerhouse global firm’, White & Case LLP‘s corporate practice possesses a deep bench of advisors who routinely helm high-stakes cross-border deals. Steered by healthcare and infrastructure specialist Philip Broke, the practice is additionally well regarded for its capabilities in the energy and financial services sectors. Allan Taylor, who co-chairs the EMEA corporate practice, anchors the practice’s natural resources offering – working with a mix of oil, gas, and mining companies on acquisitions, divestitures, and IPOs. Margot Lindsay is similarly recommended for her oil and gas sector acumen, as well as her capabilities in infrastructure and healthcare deals. Variously praised by clients, the ‘first-class’ Guy Potel heads up the global fintech practice group, while Tom Matthews spearheads the firm’s EMEA shareholder activism practice. A litany of domestic and international banks routinely turn to Hyder Jumabhoy for representation in the full scope of corporate transactions, ranging from M&A to joint ventures and multi-jurisdictional restructurings. Associate Sonica Tolani also comes recommended. Mining and metals specialist David Lewis joined in January 2022 from Clifford Chance LLP.
