Clifford Chance Dealmaker Hoffmann to Rejoin McDermott

Brian Hoffmann, co-chairman of Clifford Chance LLP’s mergers and acquisitions practice in the Americas, will rejoin McDermott Will & Emery LLP as a partner.

Hoffmann is returning to McDermott’s New York office, where he was a partner from 1995 to 1999, McDermott said today in an e-mailed statement.

Hoffmann’s “long history leading sophisticated corporate transactions, including public mergers and acquisitions, will enable us to meet growing demand from clients all over the world,” David Goldman, head of McDermott’s corporate advisory practice group, said in the statement.

Hoffmann, a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, specializes in M&A, high-yield and other complex corporate transactions, according to his biography on Clifford Chance’s website. He was a partner at that firm since 2002.
