Linklaters has hired a real estate finance partner from Ashurst in London.
Jessica Jenner will join the firm’s real estate finance practice in London later this year, according to a statement by Linklaters on Tuesday.
Jenner has been at Ashurst for over 20 years, according to her LinkedIn, starting her training at the firm and then making partner in 2015.
Jenner specialises in advising both sponsor and creditor clients on multi-jurisdictional transactions, with a particular focus on the U.K. and Europe, the statement added.
Andy Vickery, Linklaters global head of finance commented: “With real estate financing transactions becoming increasingly complex in nature, we are pleased to welcome Jess, whose deep experience, stellar market reputation and specialised skillset make her a powerful fit for our real estate finance team.”
The firm made a number of lateral hires internationally in recent months. In April, Linklaters bolstered its Japan offering with Ashurt’s Tokyo head, in May the firm added a Norton Rose Fulbright partner to its London intellectual property practice, and already this week has hired a Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison employment and incentives partner to its New York base.
An spokesperson for Ashurst said: “Jessica was a longstanding member of the Ashurst team and made a valuable contribution to both the global loans team and the firm’s broader finance offering during her time at the firm and we wish her all the best for the future.”
