Following the departure of 11 partners to Paul Hastings, King & Spalding’s finance and restructuring practice lost another partner to McDermott & Will Emery.

Concluding a decade-long tenure at King & Spalding, New York partner Ellen Snare said she was enticed by McDermott’s planned investments in private credit capabilities to support her lender- and sponsor-side clients in acquisition financing. While she primarily represents private equity sponsors and portfolio companies, Snare said she also represents traditional bank lenders and borrowers.
