MoFo hires finance partner from Ropes & Gray in London
Morrison & Foerster has hired finance partner Benoit Lavigne from Ropes & Gray in London.
Lavigne’s expertise is in leveraged finance, special situations lending, and acquisition finance. His hire is MoFo’s third in London since the start of the year, after recruitments from Clifford Chance and Jones Day earlier in the year.
Europe managing partner Paul Friedman called Benoit “highly regarded” as a London-based finance partner and pointed out his cross-border experience as a particular advantage in his hire.
