Just like starting over

Following a lengthy process of deliberation, US firm Proskauer Rose is on the verge of launching its London office, pinching O’Melveny & Myers private equity head Matthew Hudson to lead its assault on the London market. (see story)

Hudson said he was excited about taking on a fresh challenge when he spoke exclusively to The Lawyer about his new job. And this from a man who is no stranger to fresh challenges.

Having been in at the ground floor at the creation of SJ Berwin‘s private equity group in the 1980s, Hudson has been at the forefront of rebuilding O’Melveny’s team since 2004.

While most would welcome change in career from time to time, the evidence points towards Hudson being a serial start-up lawyer, which begs the question: where will he pop up next?
