Law Firm WilmerHale Adds Hedge Fund Expert To Team

Jun 12 2012 | 10:29am ET

Law firm WilmerHale has added Drew Chapman to the firm's New York office as a partner in the securities department and investment management group and head of the alternative investment practice.

Chapman joins WilmerHale from Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, where he served as the head of the alternative investment group. His practice focuses on the alternative investment, asset management, and financial services industries, in which he has extensive transactional, structuring and fund formation experience.

According to the firm, he has worked with some of the leading hedge funds and hedge fund service providers throughout his 15 years of private practice in New York.

"We are pleased to welcome Drew to WilmerHale," said Robert Novick, WilmerHale's co-managing partner. "Drew will act as a core investment management partner to our New York office. The transactional services that he provides compliment the manner in which we currently represent our hedge fund and alternative asset management clients in this growing market."

WilmerHale continues to grow its house of experts in New York prior to its move to the Silverstein Properties' 7 World Trade Center later this year. Chapman is one of three recent partner additions to the office.
