Alston & Bird continues to deepen its transatlantic corporate and transactional offering with the addition of partner Tamer Bahgat in London. Joining from Ashurst LLP, Bahgat focuses on international capital markets and leveraged finance transactions, with a particular emphasis on complex high-yield debt offerings, refinancings, and leveraged buyouts for corporates, private equity sponsors, and investment banks.
“As one of Europe’s leading high-yield and debt capital markets lawyers, Tamer brings additional expertise and momentum to our London finance capabilities,” said Matthew Wrysinski, Alston & Bird partner and co-head of the firm’s Finance Group. “Tamer complements and deepens our corporate debt practice as we continue to build out our client offering on both sides of the Atlantic.”
“As we continue to grow our London office, it is all the more important for our clients that we have the type of corporate expertise Tamer can offer,” said Rich Willis, partner in charge of Alston & Bird’s London office. “Tamer’s arrival marks a significant milestone in building our practice and extending our client base.”
Bahgat is the most recent addition to Alston & Bird’s London finance capabilities. Earlier this year, the firm added several partners in corporate, disputes, and restructuring, including Phil Taylor, Saloni Joshi, and Paul Morris.
