Emma Russell and Zoë Connor have joined the firm as London partners in the Finance Group. They will represent banks, investment funds and other clients on a range of financial transactions. This includes arranging capital commitment/subscription financings and other fund financings. They will focus on a collaborative, team approach, and will emphasise partner-led deals, which they will hope the market will welcome.
In addition to this, Andreas Silcher has rejoined the firm following his spell as general counsel of the LNG division of the Cardiff/Dryships group. He represents clients in transactional matters in the maritime and offshore energy sectors.
Brad Richards, administrative partner of the London office, said: “We are thrilled to land lawyers of the calibre of Emma, Zoe, and Andreas.”
The Managing Partner of the firm, Tim Powers, added: “These additions build on the momentum we have already established in the London market and will allow us to better serve and expand our client base on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Silcher has worked in the maritime, finance and oil and gas sectors for over a decade on a range of commercial transactions, from negotiating shipbuilding contracts to structuring complex multi-national joint ventures (JVs). He represents shipowners, offshore energy companies, shipyards and investors.
Silcher said: “Haynes and Boone CDG is extremely well known and respected for its work in the shipbuilding and offshore energy sectors.
“I’m excited to help build on that reputation and to also be part of a full-service firm that is quickly expanding its English law capability and global reach.”
