Her arrival follows the April 2021 hires of Steven Becker and Alex Velinsky in the Morgan Lewis structured transactions practices in New York and Washington, DC, respectively, the firm said.

On Tuesday, Morgan Lewis said it had hired David Plotinsky, a 25-year government veteran who most recently served as acting chief and principal deputy chief of the U.S. Department of Justice's Foreign Investment Review section.

A Mayer Brown representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Craske’s departure.
