Former Man Group general counsel Stephen Ross will become a partner at Sidley Austin, heading its London investment funds group.
Ross has been with the world’s second largest hedge fund manager since 2004, sitting on Man’s executive board while holding a number of senior roles, including global head of product structuring & financing and head of product operations. He became Man’s first general counsel in 2007.
Following Man's 2010 acquisition of GLG, a leading multi-strategy global investment manager, Ross also took over responsibility for Man’s regulation/compliance function and was appointed chairman of the firm-wide risk committee. Prior to joining Man, Ross was co-head of the private funds group of a Magic Circle law firm.
“Stephen is well-known and respected in asset management circles, and will be a great addition to our existing team of funds lawyers,” said Bruce Gardner, co-head of the London investment funds group, in a statement. “I look forward to working with Stephen and to the value Stephen will add, not only to our practice in London but overall to our internationally recognized global asset management practice.”
Sidley Austin has approximately 1,750 lawyers in 18 offices worldwide.
