International law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP has hired Kevin J. Sullivan as a partner in the firm’s global corporate department, based in the New York office.
“Kevin’s practice focuses on complex insurance issues that arise in private equity, M&A, restructuring and other contexts,” said Weil executive partner Barry Wolf. “His expertise will make him a great addition to the firm.”
“Nearly all of our clients’ public and private transactions require an intricate understanding of directors and officers policies, and Kevin brings deep experience in these key areas,” said Michael Aiello, chairman of Weil’s global corporate department. “Notably, he has counseled an impressive roster of blue-chip companies on representation and warranty insurance and other insurance matters that arise across all types of transactions.”
“After working for two of the world’s most successful insurance brokers, I am excited about returning to private practice and making Weil my professional home,” Sullivan commented. “It’s a great fit in terms of both practice synergies and cultural values – including dedication to client service, entrepreneurship and collaboration.”
