27 JUNE 2016 … Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its EMEA equity capital markets (ECM) capabilities with the addition of Jonathan Parry as a new partner in London.
“White & Case has built a leading ECM practice across EMEA – we advised on around 150 ECM deals in the past couple of years and, according to Bloomberg, advised on more IPOs in EMEA during 2015 than any other law firm,” said partner Stuart Matty, Head of the Global Capital Markets Practice. “As a leading UK ECM lawyer, Jon will help grow our UK IPO practice and, with the majority of ECM deals in the region governed by English law, further support the development of our English law ECM practice.”
Parry, who joins the Global Capital Markets Practice, advises both corporate clients and investment banks on a full range of international corporate finance transactions, with a particular focus on UK equity capital markets work (IPOs and secondary fundraisings and public funds). Parry joins White & Case from Ashurst, where he was a partner, and brings nearly 16 years of experience.
“Jonathan is an experienced, commercially-minded lawyer with a strong profile in the market, close relationships with leading investment banks and financial advisers and a strong issuer-side practice,” said partner Philippe Herbelin, Regional Section Head, EMEA Capital Markets. “As well as playing an important role in the ongoing development of our ECM practice, there are exciting synergies between Jonathan’s practice and our private equity and corporate teams, who advise portfolio companies and corporate clients on IPOs.”
