Simmons & Simmons brings in Barclays head
Simmons & Simmons has hired away Khasruz Zaman, the former head of M&A at Barclays. Zaman specialises in corporate finance transactions and M&A in the financial institutions sector. He has worked on domestic as well as cross-border business.
Zaman was at Barclays for nine years, having joined in 2006. Prior to his time there, he had a stint at legacy firm Hovells working as a solicitor. Before that, he worked in the corporate department at Slaughter and May.
Barclays has now lost its sixth high profile lawyer from its in-house team this year, including the banks' former managing director of litigation and investigations and former head of legal.
