LeBoeuf scoops Linklaters project partner

LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae has made another lateral hire, recruiting a Linklaters partner into its project finance practice.

Linklaters project finance partner Scott Brodsky’s departure from the magic circle firm coincides with its record £1.06m profit per equity partner announcement, as first revealed on www.thelawyer.com (19 April)

LeBoeuf’s recruitment follows that of insurance litigator Francis Mackie’s arrival from Norton Rose and that of Andrew Garard, the former Cable & Wireless general counsel.

LeBoeuf London managing partner Peter Sharp said the firm was also looking to add pensions capability to the firm.

Brodsky, who advises sponsors, financiers and governments on projects internationally, has expertise in the energy, transport and infrastructure sectors.

Brodsky has been well-travelled in his career, spending time in Hong Kong, Singapore and London for Denton Hall, Linklaters and Ashurst. He returned to Linklaters in 1998 as a projects partner in Singapore, and has been London-based since 2000.

A Linklaters statement read: “We are grateful to Scott for his contribution to the firm, and we wish him all the best in his new role.”
