Morgan Lewis announced Wednesday it has hired five banking and leveraged-finance partners from Bingham McCutchen, along with a half-dozen associates. The partners include Jonathan Bernstein, the former co-chair of Bingham's banking and leveraged-finance group. Between the credit crisis and recession, it may seem like an odd time for a firm to add lawyers who specialize in lending. But the former Bingham partners say they are busy on new loans, credit restructurings, and debtor-in-possession financings in bankruptcies.
