Laura Friedrich, a Shearman & Sterling partner who led the firm’s investment funds team, has moved to Willkie Farr & Gallagher, where she’ll be a partner in its private equity fund formation group in New York.
Friedrich, who was at Shearman for 12 years, said Willkie’s large private equity fund formation group and the firm’s other lawyers who offer transactional and regulatory counsel were a draw for her and her clients, who she said had reacted positively to her move. She said she left Shearman over the weekend and started working at Willkie on Tuesday.
