Squire Sanders has expanded its Global Corporate Practice with the appointment of M&A and capital markets partner Daniel Liptrott. Mr. Liptrott has joined the firm from Eversheds, where he was a partner in the M&A team. He follows former colleague Hannah Kendrick, who recently joined Squire Sanders’ Global Corporate Practice as a partner in its Leeds office.
Mr. Liptrott specialises in transactions for private and listed clients as well as advising on capital markets transactions such as IPOs and secondary issues. He also advises clients on matters relating to corporate governance and, from an industry perspective, he has particular experience within the engineering and retail sectors.
Mr. Liptrott’s recent experience includes advising NCC Group plc on its acquisitions of iSEC Partners, Inc., SDLC Solutions Limited and Meridian Services Limited, advising Lookers plc on its acquisition of Lomond Motors, and advising Elior on its disposal of its Paul business to Patisserie Valerie.
Jane Haxby, Europe Middle East and Africa Chair of Squire Sanders Global Corporate Practice, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Daniel to the firm. We have been looking to add to our strong corporate finance practice in Manchester, and Daniel’s background and strong local profile, together with his track record in developing close relationships with corporate clients, made him a good fit with our existing team. Daniel was attracted by our growing international platform and the opportunity it affords him to continue to build his practice both within and outside the UK.”
Squire Sanders’ Global Corporate Practice represents nearly one-third of all Fortune 500 and FTSE 350 companies in all areas of corporate activity including corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, public takeovers, IPOs and secondary offerings, private equity, venture capital and joint ventures.
