Growth in NYC and Boston Offices with Addition of New Lawyers

October 2011

White and Williams is continuing to expand its New York and Boston offices with the addition of four new lawyers in key areas related to business and litigation.

"Strategically, we wanted to focus on expanding the services we provide to our clients, especially in these key cities," said Guy Cellucci, Managing Partner.  "The experience that Neil, Lori, Bill and Rachel bring increases the firm's depth, reach and capabilities in handling our clients' litigation and business needs locally, regionally and nationally."

Partners Neil Casey and Lori Smith - both business lawyers - joined the firm's New York office.  Neil is a 20-year veteran lawyer focused on investment funds, compliance, securitization, derivatives and finance.  He represents investment managers with respect to fund formation, distribution and compliance issues and works with hedge funds, private equity funds and other financing and investment vehicles in connection with investment acquisitions, exit strategies and workouts

Lori is a prominent venture capital lawyer with 25 years experience handling corporate and commercial transactional work for her clients, as well as acting as outside general counsel managing all of their other legal needs. She has significant experience representing emerging technology companies and venture capital and angel investors in connection with early and growth stage financings and strategic transactions.

Neil and Lori are two of several partners the firm has brought on laterally in the past year to the New York office.  Since opening its doors in 2000, the New York office has grown to 27 lawyers.

In Boston, William Sawyer and Rachel Eisenhaure - counsel and associate, respectively - have joined the firm.  Bill has decades of experience counseling private and public business entities on diverse issues relating to structure, capital formation, financing, management, governance, taxation, dispute avoidance and resolution and performance.  He specializes in common sense, cost-effective solutions to thorny business problems.

Rachel handles a variety of sophisticated and high-stakes commercial litigation matters in areas such as insurance coverage, environmental, and contract/business-tort matters.
