A four-strong senior Latham & & Watkins financing team, led by the firm’s global co-chair of banking, has actually left for U.S.-headquartered rival Paul Hastings in London.
The team, including partners Ross Anderson, Mo Nurmohamed, Karan Chopra and Rob Davidson have made the relocation, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation.
Anderson is vice chair of the firm’s global banking practice, while Nurmohamed and Chopra are co-chairs of the company’s London financing practice. Davidson was promoted to partner in 2021.
Anderson has been at Latham for 12 years, having actually joined as a partner from White & & Case. Nurmohamed has encouraged on several heavyweight mandates while at the company, including acting for Goldman Sachs International and HSBC on a multi-million pound financial investment and equity raise for British supercar producer McLaren in 2021.
The major partner team addition follows a period of financial investment for Paul Hastings, which added 2 partners in one week earlier this year.
In June, the company worked with M&A partner Tom Cartwright from Morgan Lewis & & Bockius and Jason Brooks to its structured credit group from CMS in the same week.
