We are delighted to announce that we have taken on a new Corporate partner, David Bennett, to boost our Capital Markets offering.
David joins from niche corporate boutique, Marriott Harrison, and brings with him a wealth of experience in advising on public markets transactions, corporate finance and M&A. He has particular expertise in acting on IPOs and secondary issues (advising companies, brokers, corporate finance advisers and NOMADs). He is highly regarded in AIM admissions, as well as dealing in cross border transactions, and is recommended in the Legal 500 for M&A transactions.
David is a member of the QCA Corporate Finance Committee and ISDX Advisory Group. He will join Druces’ 15-strong corporate team and will increase the firm’s partnership count to 19.
David Bennett comments:
“I am very pleased to be joining Druces. The firm’s focused expansion makes it an exciting time to join. The market offers great potential for Capital Markets work and Druces is well placed to take advantage of this because of its size and structure. I am very excited about the prospect of helping drive forward the corporate department and to help build the firm’s corporate offering.”
Head of Corporate, Toby Stroh, added:
“Druces has a very well respected corporate practice, and David’s addition to the team will assist us in maintaining and developing our core client base. Capital Markets work is a key area in which we wish to expand and David’s expertise will help us achieve our goal.”
Commenting on the hire, managing partner, Jeremy Dutton, said:
“David’s hire forms an integral part of our strategy, to build teams and provide high-value, competitive levels of service and expertise in the connected areas of business and private wealth law. The existing services offered by Druces will complement David’s skillset and client base well. We look forward to welcoming David to the team.”
