Mayer Brown in major expansion mood

International law firm Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw is in the midst of revamping its finance and private equity practices.

Hector Gonzalez and John Ferrell will join Trust as partners in New York. The firm's intention to enhance its strength globally substantiates its decision to hire Gary Jungels and Olga Loy, experts in buyout, venture, and other private equity funds, as partners to lead the expansion of the firm's Chicago private equity fund formation practice. The firm's New York office opened in 1978, and more than 200 attorneys are currently engaged in advising clients in the private and project financing, securitization, bank regulations, capital markets, corporate, venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged leasing and restructurings, real estate, and tax advice areas.
