Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman has secured two new partners as part of the London office’s strategy to recruit more attorneys who can focus on core practices. Denis Petkovic, who comes from New York’s Chadbourne & Parke, is Pillsbury’s head of European and Middle East practices. Rafi Azim-Khan, who comes from the U.K. law firm Wragge & Co., will be the European head of Pillsbury’s intellectual property/information technology practice. The appointments are part of the firm’s strategy in London to recruit U.K. and U.S. qualified lawyers to focus initially on European growth in the firm’s core domestic practices, which are energy, finance and capital markets, and outsourcing/intellectual property/information technology. “We are delighted to welcome Denis and Rafi to the Pillsbury team as the first in what we expect to be a series of hires and growth initiatives identified in a development plan for our London office late last year,” Jim Rishwain, the firm’s chairman, said in a news release. Petkovic’s experience includes representing lenders, developers, and investors on transactions in the energy, telecommunications, property, ports, oil and gas, transport, steel, hotels and other sectors. He is admitted to practice in England and Wales, Australia, and Hong Kong. Azim-Khan has advised companies on international product launches, marketing law, Internet issues, intellectual property, outsourcing as well as commercial and sponsorship issues. While he will be a part of the firm’s global sourcing practice, Azim-Khan will also work with intellectual property and privacy groups, leading both the firm’s IP/IT and E-business and marketing law teams in Europe. Pillsbury also announced that its energy partner John Mauel will become a dual resident of the firm’s Houston and London offices, starting in June. Pillsbury has more than 800 lawyers in 14 offices.
