Clifford Chance on Monday said it had hired a Mayer Brown partner to lead its Americas real estate group. Douglas L. Wisner, who for the last four years led Mayer Brown’s real estate practice group in New York, joined Clifford Chance as a partner. Wisner, who will be based in New York, said Clifford Chance’s decision could be “characterized as a strategic decision on their part to expand the real estate group.”

Wisner, who joined Mayer Brown in 1994 from Winston & Strawn, has experience representing investment and commercial banks in arranging financing for real estate transactions. In particular, Wisner has experience in hospitality, which Clifford Chance in a statement said was “part of a key sector” the firm had identified for growth.
