(Reuters) – Haynes and Boone has tapped three Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft attorneys for its workplace in Charlotte, North Carolina, deepening its bench in a metropolis deemed “a key hub” for the firm’s worldwide finance practice.

Holly Loftis has joined the practice as a partner, along with associates Eric Worthington and Mark Nesdill, from Cadwalader’s Charlotte, North Carolina office, one of the Wall Street-focused firm’s three U.S. locations.

While at Cadwalader, Loftis worked as counsel for more than five years before becoming special counsel. For over a decade, she has worked in fund finance and represented banks and financial institutions.

“Haynes (and) Boone is a real pioneer on this area, because it was the primary legislation agency to construction and engineer the (fund finance) product within the late Eighties. Given the agency’s 30-plus years of expertise, paired with the large crew of devoted legal professionals, purchasers have a bonus when utilizing Haynes Boone,” said Loftis in a statement.

A spokesperson from Cadwalader wished the three departing attorneys well.

Haynes and Boone, a 600-attorney Big Law firm, opened its Charlotte office in March 2019 with finance lawyer and former King & Spalding partner Justin Riess at the helm.

The firm moved its Charlotte office in February to create more space for its impending expansion. The location now has seven attorneys, according to the firm’s website.

“Charlotte is a key hub in our worldwide Finance Practice, which has been one of many cornerstones of Haynes and Boone since its founding,” Taylor Wilson, the firm’s managing partner, said at the time of the move. “Our new workplace will enable us to proceed the momentum we’ve got established in Charlotte.”
