Drinker Biddle & Reath has appointed Jinho Alex Yim as a partner in the Corporate and Securities Group in New York. Yim comes to the firm from Nixon Peabody.

With experience in a variety of industries, including telecommunications, transportation, health care, sports and manufacturing, Yim focuses his practice on large cap and middle market financial transactions. An advisor to leading US and global financial institutions, he works with corporate borrowers, private equity sponsors and mutual fund companies on complex financing and corporate transactions, some of which include public-private partnerships, leveraged acquisitions, asset-based financings and securities lending.

“Adding a lawyer of Alex’s calibre advances the continued strategic growth of our Corporate and Securities Group,” says Andrew C Kassner, chairman and CEO of Drinker Biddle. “In particular, Alex brings considerable finance experience which, coupled with his international business relationships, makes him an excellent addition to the firm.”

Prior to Nixon Peabody, Yim was counsel at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. He previously served as a foreign legal consultant at Lee & Ko in South Korea and had a summer clerkship with the US Department of Labor.

“Alex’s arrival presents an exciting opportunity for us to expand our corporate finance, capital markets capabilities and securities practice in the U.S. and in critical growing markets across the world,” says James M Fischer, chair of the firm’s Corporate and Securities Group. “The depth and breadth of his experience with sophisticated financial matters is reflected in his track record of success. We are impressed by the results Alex has achieved for clients and look forward to working with him.”

Yim earned his JD degree from Syracuse University College of Law, where he was the executive editor of the Syracuse Law & Technology Journal. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in international relations from The Johns Hopkins University.
