International law firm Debevoise & Plimpton has expanded its financial institutions group with the addition of two lawyers, Gregory J. Lyons and Satish M. Kini, as partners of the firm.

Lyons (pictured) and Kini each focus on serving the needs of financial institutions, as well as private equity and other funds that invest in financial institutions, with a particular emphasis on domestic and cross-border bank regulatory, transactional and examination matters.

Lyons will serve as co-chair for the Americas of the firm’s financial institutions group and will be resident in the New York office. He joins Debevoise from the Boston office of Goodwin Procter where he was a partner and co-chair of its financial services group and chair of its banking practice.

Kini will serve as co-chair of Debevoise’s banking practice and will be resident in the Washington D.C. office. He joins Debevoise from the Washington D.C. office of Goodwin Procter where he was a partner and member of that firm’s financial services practice.

Martin Frederic Evans, presiding partner of Debevoise, says: "We are delighted to welcome these outstanding lawyers to the firm. Greg and Satish will substantially strengthen our firm’s presence in the banking arena. The addition of Greg and Satish will also enhance the ability of our market-leading insurance, asset management and private equity teams to assist clients in responding effectively to the challenges and opportunities posed by the rapidly changing and integrating regulatory and business environments for financial institutions in the U.S. and around the world. They will play leading roles in the long-term growth of our banking and broader financial institutions practice."

Lyons adds: "I have been impressed by Debevoise’s global financial institutions capabilities, its franchise strengths in insurance, asset management and private equity, and the growth of its banking practice. Together, we now offer clients an exceptionally broad and integrated array of financial institutions services. Debevoise is incredibly well-positioned to be one of the few firms truly able to provide the cross-border, integrated expertise that will be critical as regulatory regimes and financial industries converge in the US, Europe and elsewhere."
