Paul Hastings Adds Again to Global Finance Team in London

January 30, 2023

London – Continuing the strategic expansion of its market-leading global finance practice, Paul Hastings LLP has added high-yield lawyer Alexander Horstmann-Caines as a partner in London.

“The addition of Alex, following that of Patrick Bright and Morgan Bale, further solidifies our status as a global market leader in leveraged finance and capital markets,” said Ross Anderson, London office co-chair and a partner in the global finance practice. “We have created a ‘super team’ within our existing high-profile global finance practice to better serve the sophisticated needs of our clients.”

Focusing on high-yield offerings and leveraged finance transactions, Horstmann-Caines regularly advises on a wide variety of debt and equity capital market and corporate finance transactions, bond financial restructurings, liability management transactions and general U.S. securities law matters.

“Seizing the opportunity to join a firm with such a strong growth trajectory and exceptional momentum was an easy choice,” said Horstmann-Caines. “I’m excited to rejoin Patrick and Morgan with the backing of Paul Hastings’ global finance platform, which continues to reach new heights in London and around the world.”

Horstmann-Caines joins from Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. His arrival at Paul Hastings comes on the heels of leading infrastructure and energy lawyers Jessamy Gallagher and Stuart Rowson. Ten lateral partners joined the London office last year, including Alex’s former Weil colleagues, leading high-yield partner Patrick Bright and leading investment-grade partner Morgan Bale, a Band 1 global finance team, as well as other partners and lawyers in M&A, private equity, structured credit, securities and capital markets, and IP litigation.

The Paul Hastings global finance practice advises virtually every leading investment bank and the largest and most prestigious asset managers across its finance and capital markets platforms. The firm is recognized as one of the world’s premier platforms in leveraged finance, private credit, capital markets and structured credit domestic and cross-border transactions.
