Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP‘s global financial services practice acts for financial institutions, including many of the world’s largest banks, as well as insurance companies, investment funds and public and private corporate borrowers. The firm continued to expand its practice, which is centred on Christopher Harrison  and Trevor Wood who joined in 2017, with the hire of projects partner Gavin Watson from Dechert LLP. Watson specialises in the oil and gas sector and frequently handles projects in emerging markets. The London finance group acts in debt and equity financing, M&A, and both outward and inward investments, which in 2018 included advising Borealis AG on its investment in a large-scale polyethylene project in Central Asia. Clients praise the ‘“hands” on involvement from the highest level of the practice‘. Partner Matthew Oresman  and senior associate Henrietta Worthington are ones to watch.
