International law firm King & Spalding has recruited Drew G.L. Chapman as a partner in the financial institutions practice in its New York office.

Chapman—the seventh financial institutions partner to join the firm in eight months—joins King & Spalding from WilmerHale, where he was head of the alternative investment group.
 
“Drew is an accomplished hedge fund and alternative investments lawyer, and we are fortunate he has chosen to join our growing team,” said Sarah R. Borders, leader of King & Spalding’s capital transactions and real estate practice, in a statement. “He provides a strong complement to our existing practice, especially with its expanding funds focus on public and private investment vehicles.”

Since September 2013, King & Spalding has added Zaid Al-Farisi (Dubai), Werner Meier (Frankfurt), Ellen Snare (New York), Maya Melnikas (Moscow), Matthew Bromberg (New York) and Angela Hayes (London) to its global financial institutions team.

King & Spalding’s financial institutions practice is comprised of more than 100 lawyers worldwide with expertise in complex financings, private equity, fund formation, litigation, investigations, Islamic finance, real estate capital markets, tax and regulatory matters.
