Sidley Adds Global Finance Partner in New York

April 12, 2019, 09:00 AM

Sidley Austin LLP announced that finance lawyer Leslie A. Plaskon has joined the firm as a partner in its Global Finance practice in New York. One of several recent additions to Sidley’s New York office,  Plaskon joins from Paul Hastings LLP, where she was a partner.

Plaskon represents a broad group of alternative lenders, investors, traditional banks and investment banks, as well as borrowers in connection with complex finance transactions, cross-border matters and intercreditor arrangements. She also has significant experience with distressed situations, debt restructurings and bankruptcy matters, including debtor-in-possession and exit financing facilities, and Chapter 11 plans, having advised clients in Chapter 11 cases and out-of-court restructurings and workouts. 

“As we continue to focus on the growth of our finance practice, Leslie brings tremendous depth and experience working with commercial banks and the non-bank lending side of finance,” said Kevin Blauch, leader of Sidley’s Global Finance group. “Leslie is a strong addition to our rapidly growing office in New York, which is part of our strategy to further build our presence in the world’s major financial centers.”

Sidley’s demonstrated commitment to attracting top talent and investment in its transactional capabilities in New York is integral to the execution of the firm’s strategic plan, and evident by its recent wave of high-profile lateral hires, including Ms. Plaskon.
