Centerview Takes A Shot On Chinn

Feb 20 2007 | 9:40am ET

Centerview Partner, the private equity and investment banking firm founded by a group of Wall Street bigwigs, has added lawyer Adam Chinn as a founding partner.

Chinn, who joins the New York-based firm on March 1, has spent the last 20 years at law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, where he is a partner in its financial institutions advisory practice. In that post, he has worked on a large number of major mergers and acquisitions, including the Bank One-JPMorgan Chase merger, as well as the Lazard Frères initial public offering.

“We are building a firm focused on providing senior-level strategic advice, and we are thrilled to have someone of Adam’s caliber joining the firm as a founding partner,” Robert Pruzan, another founding partner, said.

Centerview was founded by Pruzan, the former Wasserstein Perella president, former Morgan Stanley Co-President Stephen Crawford, former UBS Vice Chairman Blair Effron and former Gillette Company CEO  James Kilts.
