March 12, 2018 (London) – Continuing its strategic growth in London, international law firm Proskauer announced today the arrival of leading corporate lawyer and private equity specialist Richard Bull.
“Richard shares Proskauer’s vision of serving asset managers, and his extensive experience in private equity and growth capital transactions will be a terrific asset,” said Mary Kuusisto, head of Proskauer’s London office. “We continue to build an acclaimed team and believe in offering true business partners to our clients.”
Mr. Bull has a domestic and international corporate practice, including M&A, private investments and joint ventures. Representing asset managers in connection with their investments, he focuses on financial services and technology. He also advises financial institutions on corporate venture investments and growth/expansion activities. Mr. Bull is an acclaimed lawyer in The Legal 500.
Steven Davis, who co-heads Proskauer’s Private Equity and M&A practice, said, “Richard enjoys a reputation as a leading private equity lawyer and is a market recognized expert for private equity and M&A transactions in the financial services and technology sector. His arrival will provide further strength and depth to our private equity and M&A offering and in conjunction with Andrew Wingfield and others should ensure we are a destination firm for M&A in financial services.”
Proskauer’s growth is in part due to its consistent work with some of the highest profile global players in the private equity market. Most recently, the London team advised Safetykleen Europe on its sale to Apax Partners; Intermediate Capital Group on the acquisition of Park Holidays UK; and Investcorp in its acquisition of Kee Safety Ltd. Other headline transactions include the high-profile fundraising of HgCapital 8 and HgCapital Mercury 2 with a combined value of £3.1 billion.
