Mid Europa hires legal counsel

The CEE investor recruited talent from law firm White & Case.

Mid Europa Partners named Jana Philip as legal counsel. In her new role, she will take on responsibility for corporate legal matters and commercial transactions at the firm.
Philip was previously at law firm White & Case where she began her career in the Prague office as a Czech advocate before coming to the UK and qualifying as an English solicitor. 
Mid Europa managing partner Thierry Baudon welcomed the new hire, saying in a statement that Philip “will be an invaluable addition to the team as we continue to bolster our operational capabilities.”
The additional legal resources come at a time when Mid Europa, a Central and Eastern European-focused firm, just closed its fourth fund on a revised €800 million target.
The fund, which held a €665 million first close in January, has an additional pre-allocated co-investment program of €650 million, according to a statement.
