Corporate Partner Martin Hunt Joins King & Spalding's London Office

LONDON--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - In the continuing expansion of its global corporate practice, Martin Hunt is joining the London office of King & Spalding, the firm announced today. Hunt is a UK solicitor who also is a U.S. qualified lawyer in Texas and New York. He is the 15th corporate partner King & Spalding has added since May 2010.

Hunt is joining King & Spalding from Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, where he was a partner.

"Martin is an exceptional lawyer with an impressive track record of corporate transactions. We are delighted he is joining the firm, and London," said Garry Pegg, co-managing partner of King & Spalding's office in London. "His international experience, a great deal of it in energy and private equity, makes him a perfect fit for our global transactional team. We look forward to the additional capability he brings to the firm." 

Hunt represents national and international clients in oil and gas, telecommunications, water, construction and chemicals industries in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, restructurings and private equity funds. He represents European companies that have businesses in the United States and U.S. companies that do business overseas on transactions, key contracts, significant acquisitions and mergers, and the potential antitrust issues that arise from these activities. He has represented clients on transactions in more than 60 countries.

Hunt received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from St. Catharine's College, Cambridge University.

King & Spalding has strengthened its global transactional practice significantly in the past 11 months with the addition of 14 other lateral partners in six financial centers: Garry Pegg and Hywel Jones in London; Crayton Bell, Ram Burshtine, Stephen Guynn, John Herbert and Ken Raskin in New York; Rizwan Kanji in Dubai; Bill Fuller, Bryant Gatrell, Ron Lovelace and Justin Riess (finance) in Charlotte; Bill Spalding in Atlanta; and Richard Hsu in Silicon Valley. 

"I greatly admire King & Spalding and have been particularly impressed with where the firm is going both in London and internationally," said Hunt. "With the London office's broad transactional support base and the firm's international network of offices, I believe King & Spalding offers me a global platform from which I can take my practice to the next level."
