Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Banking Practice and its Global Real Estate Industry Group with the addition of Sudhir Nair as a new partner in London.
"The UK property investment market is currently experiencing increased transaction volumes, particularly from overseas investors, and we expect the market to continue to perform well despite Brexit," said White & Case partner Eric Leicht, Head of the Firm's Global Banking Practice. "Our ambition in London, across EMEA and globally is to continue growing our role advising both lenders and borrowers on their most important, complex, cross-border real estate finance deals, and Sudhir adds further strength and depth to the support we provide."
Sudhir, who joins the Firm's Global Banking Practice, focuses on real estate finance and has extensive experience advising both lenders and borrowers on real estate financings and investments, including distressed investments and restructurings. He also advises lenders and financial sponsors on a variety of cross-border and domestic leveraged infrastructure financings, and has additional experience advising bank lenders and sponsors on transactions in India. Sudhir joins White & Case from Baker McKenzie, where he was a senior associate, and brings nearly 15 years of experience.
"Sudhir is an energetic, commercially-minded and technically capable lawyer who is held in high regard by his clients," said White & Case partner David Plch, Regional Section Head, EMEA Banking. "Real estate finance as a dedicated practice area is primed for further growth, and Sudhir is another exciting addition to the Firm who complements and adds materially to the experienced existing real estate finance team in London."
Partner Oliver Brettle, London-based member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, said: "Sudhir's arrival supports our ongoing strategic growth in London and he augments strong existing real estate and banking practices, which have continued to expand with the recent arrivals of lateral partners including Shane McDonald, Mike Weir and Jeffrey Rubinoff, as well as a number of internal partner promotions. London and the broader Firm achieved strong financial results in 2017 – evidence that the investments we've made over a period of years are bearing fruit – and our positive trajectory during 2018 to date is cause for continued confidence in our performance."
