Texas-based law firm Haynes and Boone has added two partners to its New York office as it expands its corporate and capital markets practices.

George Wang and Nir Yarden specialize in meeting the needs of private equity and hedge funds, prime brokers and other institutional capital market clients.

"The additions of Wang and Yarden strengthen key transactional practices within our New York office," said Ken Bezozo, New York office managing partner. "Their extensive and unique industry knowledge and transactional experience will provide our hedge fund, private equity and institutional clients with the resources necessary to navigate a market that has seen tremendous changes."

Wang, who joins the private equity practice, has extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, strategic alliances, financings, fund and venture capital transactions, licensing matters and general commercial advice.

Yarden, a corporate/investment funds partner, specializes in investment management work. His clients include investment managers, hedge funds, private equity fund, real estate funds and financial institutions. He also advises investment officers and general counsels at leading institutional investors on their alternative and traditional investment allocations and other portfolio management matters.

Haynes and Boone has also recently added three associates to the New York office—Naja Armstrong, John Beck and Rebecca Landau.

The law firm employs over 525 attorneys in offices in Texas; New York; California; Washington, D.C.; Mexico City and Moscow.
