Jonathan Baird

Jonathan specialises in investment fund and asset management-related matters.

These include public and private capital raisings, M&A activity and regulatory advice.

Jonathan works with asset managers, investment banks and corporate clients throughout the world and across all asset classes.  Much of the work involves dealing with offshore financial centres, so Jonathan is very familiar with their laws and lawyers.

Jonathan practiced for over four years in Chicago and is qualified in New York and Illinois as well as England and Wales.  He uses his U.S. experience on a daily basis to help his clients. 

"An excellent mastery of the technical issues while maintaining a pragmatic approach."
