K&L Gates continues to bolster London finance practice

RELATED TOPICS​

The London office of global law firm K&L Gates has added Barry Cosgrave as a partner in the firm’s global finance practice. Cosgrave (pictured), who joins K&L Gates from Shearman & Sterling LLP, is the second new partner addition to the firm’s London finance practice in just a month.

Cosgrave’s experience includes distressed debt and restructuring, debt capital markets, structured finance, and Islamic finance. He has significant Middle East experience, having also practiced in Dubai for a number of years.

“With a focus on distressed debt and the Middle East, my ambitions and experience are very much in line with the strategic direction of K&L Gates’ finance practice,” says Cosgrave. “I feel that I can play an important part in further growing our finance offering.”

Tony Griffiths, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ London office, says: “Structured finance, restructuring, distressed debt, and Islamic finance have continued to be a priority focus of our investment in London in recent years. Barry joins a thriving practice, and we also expect him to link up closely with our Middle East team.”

Lawyers in K&L Gates’ finance practice represent financial institutions, lenders, servicers, trustees, investors, alternative capital providers, asset based lenders, and private equity funds on borrowings, new lendings, restructurings, workouts, and enforcements of debt and equity positions encompassing a variety of financing transactions, including corporate, acquisition, asset-based, project, real estate, transportation, and Islamic finance matters.

Cosgrave’s addition follows the July arrival of fellow London finance partner Mayank Gupta from Mayer Brown
