Nixon Peabody has launched its first office outside the United States staffed partly with lawyers it is sharing with a boutique firm.
The seven-lawyer office includes three lawyers who practice with a project boutique called Trinity International, Legal Week reports. The lawyer overseeing the London office, Stavros Adamidis, told the publication that the three lawyers would split their work between Nixon Peabody and Trinity, described as an affiliated entity.
Legal Week calls the job split a “highly unusual move.”
The office will focus on leveraged and project finance, and corporate trust, a press release says.
