Proskauer & Rose continues raid of SJ Berwin's funds group

September 7, 2011 Proskauer Rose has recruited six associates from SJ Berwin’s funds group. The group follows hot on the heels of funds partners Nigel van Zyl and Oliver Rochman, who left SJ Berwin for Proskauer’s London office in July.

The hires are part of a recruitment push led by Proskauer partner Allen Fagin, who commented: “We are open to all hiring opportunities but we are not looking to hire simply to fill spots – we are looking to hire outstanding lawyers and colleagues.”

A spokesperson for Proskauer said: “A number of funds associates have expressed their intention to leave to join Proskauer. It’s always disappointing when staff decide to leave but this is an inherent part of law firms.

“We remain the market leading player with one of the largest and strongest funds teams in Europe. Over the past three years, SJ Berwin has closed more European and international private equity funds than any other firm.”
