Goodwin Hires Two Private Equity Partners in DC, CA | Investment News
(Reuters) – Goodwin Procter said on Friday it has hired two private equity partners for its offices in Washington, DC and Santa Monica, California.
Andrew Kimball joined the firm in the nation’s capital from Kirkland & Ellis. Andrew Cheng, who spent more than 18 years at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, joined the group in Southern California.
Cheng represents corporate borrowers, private equity sponsors and lenders for acquisition financings, royalty financings and special situations financings, the company said.
Kimball’s practice focuses on structuring and negotiating acquisitions and divestitures, minority investments, leveraged buyouts and financial restructurings, he said.
Kimball said a number of his private equity clients focus on health technology and healthcare-adjacent industries. He said the company’s capabilities in technology and life sciences will help serve the long-term goals of its customers.
Founded in Boston, Goodwin, an 1,800-lawyer firm, expanded its private equity practice in April by opening an 11-lawyer office in Munich.
Representatives for Gibson Dunn and Kirkland & Ellis did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Friday about their attorneys’ departures.
