Sackers appoints structured finance specialist
Sackers has strengthened its finance and investment group with the appointment of James Geer, an experienced structured finance lawyer, as a senior associate.
Geer was previously at Clifford Chance for more than nine years where he focused on derivatives, structured finance and derisking transactions, acting primarily for financial institutions. At Sackers, he will be part of the finance and investment group which is the focus of the firm’s expertise for finance and investment-related legal advice required by pension schemes as institutional investors, advising both trustees and sponsors.
Paul Phillips, head of Sackers’ finance and investment group, says: “We have seen an increasing demand from our clients for advice on complex derisking solutions. James’ arrival will enable us to continue to meet this demand and his experience of longevity swaps and all types of structured finance transactions will be invaluable.”
