Lowenstein Sandler LLP Adds Christopher Henry to M&A Practice
The law firm of Lowenstein Sandler LLP announced via a press release that it has added Christopher Henry as a partner in its private equity and mergers and acquisitions practices. Henry will work as a partner in the New York office. He comes to the firm from Ropes & Gray LLP. He had worked as a partner there since 2006.
Henry is the second lateral partner to join the law firm in 2014. He follows Michael Brosse, who joined the firm in January from Kirkland & Ellis.
“Our strategy is to broaden and deepen the services that our transaction, litigation and bankruptcy practices provide to our clients, and we’ve seen tremendous demand for M&A counsel, especially from private equity firms,” said Gary M. Wingens, Lowenstein Sandler’s chairman and managing partner. “Chris is an exceptional lawyer. He puts clients first and shares our commitment to our colleagues and communities. He’s a great fit for our very busy M&A practice and his extensive private equity experience will surely be an asset for our many sophisticated fund management clients.”
The law firm saw a 19 percent increase in revenue from transactional work in 2013. The mergers and acquisitions practice represents private companies, public companies, funds and financial sponsors.
“Lowenstein Sandler is competing against the biggest firms to advise on significant deals,” Henry said. “There is an impressive game plan to grow the firm and it is executing perfectly. Its platform for middle-market M&A work is exceptionally strong. I’m excited to contribute to a growing practice at such a dynamic firm.”
