Latham & Watkins hires two
Latham & Watkins has appointed Mateja Maher and Adrian Grocock to its London office. Both will join as partners.
The duo have experience in fund formations, secondary transactions, GP-led restructurings and fund-level liquidity offerings.
In their new roles, both will advise on structuring and establishing private funds in several strategies, as well as secondary transactions.
Both join from Sidley Austin’s investment funds practice in London, where Maher was a partner and Grocock was a senior associate.
Maher focused on primary fundraising and secondary transactions in illiquid assets in his previous role at Sidley. Prior to that, he gained experience as general counsel at Campbell Lutyens, partner in private funds at Kirkland & Ellis and trainee associate at Simmons & Simmons. He also has a BA (Hons) in modern languages from the University of Oxford.
Grocock spent three years as an investment funds associate at Kirkland & Ellis before joining in a senior position at Sidley. He has also worked at The Boston Consulting Group, Macfarlanes, the House of Commons and CNN. Grocock has a BA and an MSc from LSE.
