Addleshaw Goddard is growing its corporate banking practice, with the appointment of Angus Gill from Hogan Lovells. The appointment reflects the rapid growth of the firm's City based corporate banking practice and provides greater bench strength across the spectrum of its corporate banking and leveraged finance clients - both lenders and borrowers.
The appointment follows the recent appointments of partner Oliver Carruthers, a project finance specialist, and is consistent with a more general focus and investment by Addleshaw Goddard in the financial services sector including the recent arrival from Lehman Brothers of derivatives specialist Rosalind Mason.
Amanda Gray, Finance Division Managing Partner, said: "Angus' reputation with clients is outstanding and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us. His proven expertise combined with our existing capability, will be an attractive proposition in the City where we enjoy panel status with all the major lenders and see real potential to grow our market share."
Angus joins from the international banking practice of Hogan Lovells. He has extensive experience in acting for both lenders and borrowers across a range of areas, including advising on the senior and mezzanine financing arrangements on acquisitions and in relation to real estate finance and restructurings.
Addleshaw Goddard's Banking & Finance practice comprises 40 partners and over 170 other fee earners.
The team advises on the full range of financial issues including real estate finance, corporate banking, leveraged finance, project and infrastructure finance, housing finance, asset finance, asset based lending, private placements, trade finance, Islamic finance and derivatives.
