Partner Appointment at Bryan Cave
International law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) is pleased to welcome Vishal Mawkin as a partner in the Debt Capital Markets (DCM) team of the Corporate and Finance Transactions practice group.
Vishal joins BCLP from Norton Rose Fulbright, where he was counsel in its London DCM team. Vishal’s practice focuses on representing issuers and underwriters across a broad range of sectors on English and New York law governed cross-border debt financings, including straight Reg S/Rule 144A offerings, EMTN programmes, high-yield debt offerings, project financings, green and sustainable financings, and financial restructuring transactions.
Vishal is recognised by The Legal 500 UK and the International Financial Law Review as a 'Rising Star', and he is also ranked by Chambers and Partners UK.
Vishal is the latest hire to the London Corporate and Finance Transactions group, following the appointment of leading DCM practitioner David Dunnigan as a senior consultant earlier this year.
“BCLP’s international corporate finance practice is well known to me, and I am thrilled to be joining such a talented team," said Vishal. “I look forward to growing my practice in collaboration with David Dunnigan and my new BCLP international colleagues, and to building out the DCM practice to support clients in both developed and emerging markets. I see my practice as a complement to BCLP’s strong corporate and finance relationships and global growth strategy.”
Carol Osborne, global leader of the Corporate and Finance Transactions group at BCLP, said, “We are very excited to welcome Vishal to our Firm. Vishal's arrival will further strengthen our ability to deliver on our global DCM strategy.”
