Baker & McKenzie has expanded its London capital markets practice with the hire of partner Peter Castellon.

The former director and counsel of Citigroup is highly respected by both the investment banking community and capital markets lawyers.

During his seven-year tenure at Citigroup he was responsible for advising the capital markets team on a range of securities offerings and transactional activity, including IPOs, follow-on and secondary offerings, block trades, rights offerings and offerings of convertible and exchangeable bonds.

Castellon is currently co-chairman of the European High Yield Association’s accounting and due diligence working group.
