US: Allen & Overy recruits Cadwalader partner

 |  January 17, 2017

Allen & Overy has boosted its US base with the hire of Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft partners Gregory Mocek and Anthony Mansfield in Washington DC.

Mocek and Mansfield will join A&O’s US investigations and litigation practice, and will continue to focus their practice on the energy sector. They join from Cadwalader’s closing Houston office.

Mocek was at Cadwalader for six years, having joined from McDermott Will & Emery, where he worked for two years. Prior to that, Mocek was a director of enforcement at the US Commodities Future Trading Commission.

Mansfield was at Cadwalader for seven years, having also joined from McDermott where he worked for a year. Before that, he was chief trial attorney and counsel to the director of enforcement to the US Commodities Future Trading Commission.

These hires come almost two years after A&O partners voted to introduce ‘superpoints’ to attract talent in the US as part of a wider change in the firm’s lockstep. Earlier this year, the firm broke lockstep for the first time with a number of partner hires in New York.
