Baker & McKenzie (B&M) has hired finance lawyer Nick Tostivin from Linklaters into its partnership as the firm looks to rapidly expand its London banking and finance practice.
Tostivin, a specialist in acquisition finance, particularly leveraged finance, will join as a partner in late March. He was previously a managing associate at Linklaters.
His hire brings the number of partners within B&M’s London banking and finance team to 11 and follows the recent arrival of a four-partner securities team from Norton Rose. They were Jonathan Walsh, Vincent Keaveny, Bruce Somer and Simon Porter.
B&M plans to expand the team further over the coming months with the recruitment of a further six associates already in the pipeline.
B&M banking and finance partner Bernard Sharp said: “The private equity market continues to be a major focus for us, and Nick's experience in acquisition finance will further strengthen the service we can offer both private equity and bank clients.”
