Proskauer also made an announcement on Monday about the addition of Steven Davis in the firm’s London office as a corporate partner.

“Steven is one of the pre-eminent M&A lawyers in London. His decision to join us substantially advances the global buildout of our M&A and private equity platforms and continues our successful expansion efforts in the UK,” said Proskauer Chairman Joseph M. Leccese.

Davis said the following about joining Proskauer:

“Proskauer has a well-established and robust private equity offering, advising clients through the full lifecycle of their most significant deals. I look forward to integrating my practice and furthering the global reach of the firm’s cross-border services.”

The fourth firm to make a major announcement on Monday morning was that of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP. The firm has added Karl S. Stern to the office in Houston. Stern will serve as the head of the office’s civil litigation practice.

John Quinn, the firm’s managing partner, said, “When we opened our Houston office in July with David Gerger we knew we were adding one of the elite white collar criminal practitioners in Houston. We wanted to add a lawyer with an equal reputation to lead our civil litigation practice. It is not surprising we found him at V&E. We regard V&E as one of the top firms in the country. We have many friends there and we hope Karl’s joining us will further strengthen our relationship and provide more opportunities to work together.”
