LONDON, October 7, 2014: Morgan Lewis today announced that Tim Corbett, a New York-qualified lawyer focusing on cross-border corporate transactions, has joined the firm as a partner in its Business and Finance Practice in London. Mr. Corbett is the fourth lateral hire into Morgan Lewis’s London corporate team this year, further strengthening the firm’s international transactional platform.
Mr. Corbett, who was formerly in the corporate practice group of another large international law firm in London, provides advice on public and private equity and debt offerings, mergers and acquisitions and venture capital financings, as well as general corporate governance and public company disclosure and compliance matters. He works primarily with companies in the life sciences, technology and media sectors, including those involved in biotechnology, internet, e-commerce and digital media, television broadcasting, and semiconductor design and manufacture.
“Tim is the latest in a string of outstanding additions we have made to our corporate transactional team in London and we are thrilled to welcome him to the firm. The key hires we have made to strengthen our business and finance practice underscore our continuing commitment to serving clients globally,” said Firm Chair Jami Wintz McKeon.
“Tim’s arrival at Morgan Lewis broadens our capacity to serve clients in strategic transactions, cross-border public offerings, and venture capital investments,” said Charles Engros, the leader of Morgan Lewis’s Business and Finance Practice. “He will complement our existing capabilities in London and around the world, particularly given his experience advising companies in the technology and life sciences industries.”
“Tim adds critical mass to our business transactional practice in the United Kingdom and across our European office network,” said London Managing Partner Peter Sharp. “He will also help us further expand our services to non-European clients, including those based in the United States.”
