Bain Capital names GC
Bain Capital has appointed Will Rosen, former managing partner at Ropes & Gray, as the firm’s general counsel, based in London.
He initially joined Bain on a 12 month secondment in September 2021 and has now decided to stay with the firm.
Within the firm’s legal leadership, Rosen will be working alongside Bart Gombert, managing director and general counsel for Asia, as well as Bryan Curran, general counsel for North America private equity.
Rosen spent 11 years at Ropes & Gray, the last five of which he was managing partner. Initially he joined the firm in 2011 as a partner, and his practice focused on private equity sponsors and capital providers, particularly US, European and Asian investors. He was particularly active in healthcare, life sciences, technology, consumer and leisure, industrials and business services.
Prior to his time at Ropes & Gray, Rosen spent three years as head of private equity EMEA at DLA Piper, a move he made following five years as partner at Weil, Gotshal & Manges.
