Debevoise & Plimpton boosts PE practice with London hire

September 21, 2010 US firm Debevoise & Plimpton has boosted its London private equity practice with the hire of partner David Innes from Travers Smith.

Debevoise presiding partner Martin Frederick Evans said Innes would play a “leading role in the long-term growth of our private equity M&A practice and help expand our presence in the London market”.

Debevoise London office head James Scoville added: “We already have leading US and English mergers and acquisitions, funds formation, leveraged finance and tax practices here.

“David’s arrival provides us with added strength specifically in private equity M&A. In addition to building out this core practice in London, we expect his expertise will significantly strengthen our firm’s ability to meet the needs of our clients throughout Europe and globally.”
