Lowenstein Sandler has hired Christopher Henry as a partner.
Henry joins Lowenstein Sandler’s New York office from Ropes & Gray, where he had been a partner since 2006.
Henry is the second partner from a high profile law firm to join Lowenstein Sandler’s M&A and private equity group in 2014, close on the heels of Michael Brosse, who joined the firm from Kirkland & Ellis in January.
“Our strategy is to broaden and deepen the services that our transaction, litigation and bankruptcy practices provide to our clients, and we’ve seen tremendous demand for M&A counsel, especially from private equity firms,” said Gary M. Wingens, Lowenstein Sandler’s chairman and managing partner.
Henry’s practice focuses on representing public companies, private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies, and privately-owned businesses in mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, growth investments, dispositions, joint ventures and equity and debt financings.
