This article reports that the company, Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft, has secured Shearman & Sterling's antitrust lawyer Steven Sunshine after tabling a dazzling annual remuneration package believed to exceed $3 million. Shearman global antitrust head Sunshine is joining Cadwalader with Junior partners Jess Biggio and David Wales. Sunshine and Wales will work out of Cadwalader's Washington DC office, while Biggio joins the New York City-based office. Sunshine, who last year counseled De Beers LV in its settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, reportedly, will lead Cadwalader's newly-created antitrust practice.
