Vladimir Maly has joined the London office of Morrison & Foerster as a partner in the corporate practice.

Mr Maly joins Morrison & Foerster from Latham & Watkins. His arrival is further evidence of Morrison & Foerster’s intent to continue to build the practice in London following the appointment of Graeme Sloan as London corporate head and global M&A co-chair earlier this year.

Mr Maly’s particular focus as a corporate and international M&A lawyer is on providing equity derivatives-related advice in the context of cross-border financings, M&A, and other corporate transactions. Mr Maly counsels credit institutions, corporations, private equity funds, high-net-worth individuals, sovereign wealth funds, and asset management clients with acquisitions and disposals of investments, non-traditional finance structures, and risk transfers.

‘We are committed to expanding our outstanding corporate and finance capability in London and across Europe,’ Paul Friedman, managing partner of MoFo for Europe, said. ‘Vlad has a proven track record of success and brings to us extensive experience that complements our existing corporate practice.’

‘Morrison & Foerster has an outstanding global reputation, and I am excited to join the firm,’ Mr Maly said. ‘I look forward to working with my colleagues to serve our clients as effectively as possible and enhance our corporate finance transaction execution capability.’
