“We are excited to welcome Andrew to our firm and to continue the impressive growth of our Leveraged Finance & Private Credit team in London,” said London Managing Partner Greg Petrick. “Andrew’s expertise across all aspects of Leveraged Finance and, in particular, his substantial experience in structuring and executing a wide range of private credit transactions in multiple jurisdictions will perfectly complement our fast-growing team.”

Cadwalader partner Matthew Smith, who leads the firm’s Leveraged Finance & Private Credit Practice in London, added: “Having been fortunate enough to work with Andrew for a number of years, I am delighted we are now able to count him as part of our team. His expertise in advising top-tier private credit funds and other financial institutions is a perfect fit for our Global Finance Practice and a key part of our continued strategic expansion in London.”
