US law firm Sullivan & Worcester is to open a London office.
Geoffrey Wynne, current head of trade and export finance at SNR Denton, will join the new office as senior partner, reporting into the firm’s global management committee.
The office will initially have a strong trade finance focus, but a spokesperson for Sullivan & Worcester says the firm “anticipates that the London office will further broaden and enhance existing practices in cross-border finance, mergers and acquisitions, tax, banking and international arbitration”.
Sullivan & Worcester’s managing partner Joel Carpenter says: “Geoff’s extraordinary reputation in trade and commodities finance transactions strengthens our current trade finance practice. A significant presence in London is increasingly important to our clients, and with Geoff at its foundation, we anticipate our London office will further our plans to broaden and enhance our existing practices in cross-border finance, mergers and acquisitions, tax, banking, and international arbitration.”
