Orrick announced today that Jonathan Rosen has joined the firm as a partner in our Tax Group in London. He joins the firm from Akin Gump. Jonathan’s arrival follows the addition last fall of Daniel Wayte from Milbank and James Connor from Simpson Thacher to our PE and M&A team in London and Ali Ramadan to our Tech Companies Group earlier in the year.
“We have had great success in adding rising stars to our team as we continue to invest in our London office,” said Simon Willis, Orrick’s London office leader. “Jonathan is another first class addition who brings real energy and commercial insight to advising our clients as we build on our global practice and sector strengths in Tech, Energy & Infrastructure and Finance.”
Jonathan advises on corporate tax matters. He provides tax counsel on UK, cross-border and international corporate and finance transactions, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and reorganizations. Jonathan also advises on tax disputes, funds and investment structures. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
“I am truly excited about Orrick’s sector-focused strategy – which is directly aligned with what clients are looking for today. The firm’s culture and focus on innovative service delivery were also a real draw,” said Jonathan. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with the team here in London and globally to grow the practice.”
In May, Pitchbook ranked Orrick the #1 law firm for European venture capital for the 13th consecutive quarter. Orrick completed four times the number of transactions as the runner-up firm.
