K&L Gates has expanded its finance practice by adding four new partners in the London office. Matthew G.J. Duncan, Theresa Kradjian, and Paul Matthews join the firm from Sidley Austin. Sean J.W. Crosky came from Norton Rose, according to a release from the law firm.
Duncan represents clients such as lenders, investment and commercial banks, funds, issuers, borrowers, trustees, insurers, and others in a wide range of finance matters. He primarily focuses on RMBS, covered bonds, and the establishment of new lending platforms. Aside from advising on the purchase and sale of institutions and asset portfolios, Duncan works with clients on spin-offs/divestitures/carve-outs, restructurings, warehouse financings, and outsourcing agreements.
