International firm White & Case has added a team including two new partners to its private equity practice in Stockholm.

Partners Jan Jensen and Shoan Panahi join the team from Hannes Snellman, alongside senior associate Patrik Erblad.

Jensen was the head of private equity at Hannes Snellman and also served as the chairman of the board at the firm. Panahi had been with the firm for more than five years and was only elevated to the partnership in January 2017.

It is the second notable departure from the firm in as many weeks, following a move that saw its St Petersburg and Moscow offices switching to Eversheds Sutherland en masse earlier in September.
