Former Kirkland & Ellis restructuring specialist Lyndon Norley is to join Greenberg Traurig Maher (GTM) in London next month as the US-headquartered firm continues to build its UK operation.
Norley said: “It’s very exciting to be at the beginning of something. GTM wants a full-service practice. They bought into restructuring very significantly in New York this year and they recognise it as a key component.”
Norley is the thirteenth partner hire since the firm was set up in June this year.
At GTM he will be reunited with fellow former Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft partner Bruce Zirinsky.
Norley left Kirkland in October, to be replaced as head of European restructuring by London partners Kon Asimacopoulos and Partha Kar.
Norley’s move is one of a series in the restructuring world this year. Dan Hamilton left White & Case for Ashurst (The Lawyer, 10 August) and Nick Angel left Ashurst for Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy (The Lawyer, 26 August).
GTM has also hired Lovells employment partner Naomi Feinstein, who will set up the firm’s employment practice in London.
GTM London chair Paul Maher said: “Her experience in this area - especially in employment law issues arising in the M&A and restructuring areas - will be invaluable.”
