London-based firm Mischon de Reya opened the doors to its first international office in New York City Tuesday. James McGuire will serve as managing partner of the new office and oversee a staff of 15.
“Opening our first international office in one of the major financial centres of the world is an exciting opportunity for both our business and for our clients, said Kevin Gold, managing partner of Mischcon de Reya. “It is also timely. There has been a rise in the level of regulation globally. A presence in two of the world’s leading financial centres is exactly what clients of the expanded firm need. ”
McGuire previously was a founding partner of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton’s New York office and formerly was a partner at international firm White & Case.
