London — Leading global law firm Mayer Brown announced today that Greg Stonefield has joined its Corporate & Securities group in London as a partner. Greg joins from White & Case LLP, where he was a partner in the corporate group, focussing on international ECM and M&A.

Greg has significant experience advising corporate clients and investment banks on equity, M&A, joint ventures and private equity transactions across a full range of sectors, including oil and gas, mining and metals and real estate. In addition to his domestic practice, Greg has an impressive track record advising on cross-border M&A and equity capital market transactions, particularly those in emerging markets. He has also advised on several high profile matters, including listings that have been a 'first' on the London Stock Exchange.

The move will add to the domestic and international M&A and equity capital market capabilities of the Corporate & Securities group, which has over 150 lawyers worldwide. Working closely with both the London and global Corporate & Securities team, Greg will play an important role in further developing Mayer Brown's work with international corporations and financial institutions.

The Corporate & Securities group in London has strong cross-border capabilities and recently led a multi-jurisdiction team who advised Brookfield Property Partners on its acquisition of EZW Gazeley Limited, formerly owned by Dubai-based Economic Zones World.

Peter Dickinson, head of Corporate & Securities in London at Mayer Brown, said: "We are delighted to welcome Greg to our corporate team. There is an extremely international dimension to our practice and we also have an emerging markets focus. Greg's international and sector experience will complement our domestic and global capabilities."

Greg Stonefield said: "I have long admired Mayer Brown; the firm has a great global platform and its focus on the emerging markets and natural resources sectors fits perfectly with my practice. I look forward to working with the team to continue the development of the group."
