In brief: Pinsent Curtis

Pinsent Curtis is boosting its London office by moving the national head of corporate law down from Leeds. Alan Greenough (left) was lead partner in several recent major deals, including a £360m deal with Newmond and another £145m deal with AM Paper. The Leeds-based firm is hoping to win more international deals following the move. “Deals are getting bigger and the market in London is getting more and more international,” says Greenough. The firm expects to recruit more London-based lawyers to join him in a specialised equity team.
