(businesspress24) - LONDON – New advisory law firm Avonhurst today announced it will be joined by new partner, Emmanuel Amos. Since Avonhurst launched just six weeks ago, it has already attracted three partners who honed their practice at magic circle firms.

Amos joins the firm from asset management consultancy MJ Hudson, where he was a partner. He was previously at Jones Day in Singapore and spent six years in the London office of magic circle firm Allen & Overy. He has extensive experience advising clients on a wide range of corporate transactions, including domestic and cross-border M&A transactions, joint ventures, private equity and venture capital transactions, restructurings and fund formation.

Avonhurst, which launched in London in July, is a mould-breaking advisory firm founded by leading figures in the capital markets, banking and finance and real estate sectors. It was created to meet the changing needs of sophisticated capital by providing a bespoke offering comprising legal, legislative / political risk advisory and capital services. Founded by former Jones Day partner and leading capital markets and funds lawyer Jonathan Bloom, the new firm’s day-one team included former head of banking and finance at PwC Legal Laetitia Costa, and Nigel Heilpern, who headed the London real estate and real estate finance department at King & Spalding. The new hire is the third partner hire since the firm’s launch, following the hire of former magic circle lawyers Ian Frost and James Wyatt.

Jonathan Bloom, Chief Executive of Avonhurst, comments:

“We are delighted to be joined by Emmanuel, who exemplifies the mix of international experience and specialist expertise that Avonhurst offers its clients. Sophisticated capital clients require advisors who can navigate through the intricacies of complex transactions. Whether working on an M&A transaction, a joint venture or co-investment opportunity, or assisting on complex restructuring mandates, Emmanuel’s extensive experience in leading firms in London and abroad adds valuable corporate depth to the team.”
