Dentons has hired a new banking and finance partner in Prague.

Jiří Tomola joins the firm from White & Case having spent 10 years with the white shoe firm, making partner in 2009. 

White & Case has now seen four partners leave its Prague office in the last 12 months. In August, Ivo Barta joined his former colleagues at the firm, Jakub Dostal and Petr Kuhn, at Bodakh, a new outfit the pair launched earlier in the year. 

Tomola becomes the second White & Case Prague employee to make the switch to Dentons' rival office this year. In July, Richard Singer, the US outfit's former chief operating officer for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and EMEA director of strategic projects, joined Dentons as COO for Europe.
