MoFo hires star corporate finance partners in DC
Morrison & Foerster has hired two star corporate finance partners from Bass, Berry & Sims in its Washington D.C. office.
“Expanding our representation of public companies and growing the firm’s IPO practice are key priorities. John’s and Justin’s work for underwriters and issuers on a wide variety of offerings and securities transactions make them valuable additions to our team,” said David Slotkin, co-chair of the firm’s Corporate Finance Practice. “The fact that they also bring deep REIT experience significantly enhances our bench strength and ability to provide the best corporate and securities advice to issuers and underwriters throughout the industry.”
“John and Justin are key additions to our growing corporate finance practice,” said Brandon Parris, co-chair of the firm’s Corporate Department. “The firm’s corporate finance practice gained significant momentum last year with the addition of David Slotkin, a leading lawyer in the field who represents public and private companies in a wide variety of corporate and securities transactions with an emphasis on REITs. John’s and Justin’s experience complements that practice and strengthens our platform representing issuers and underwriters in IPOs, equity and debt offerings and other corporate finance transactions.”
