NI: Anna Vangrove joins Shoosmiths as banking and finance partner
Finance lawyer Anna Vangrove has joined Shoosmiths as a banking and finance partner in Belfast.
An experienced banking lawyer specialising in real estate finance and energy finance, Ms Vangrove joins from TLT, where she spent six years and was latterly the head of its Belfast banking and finance team.
She will work alongside M&A partner Mark Davis, who joined late last year, to deliver Shoosmiths’ growth plan in Northern Ireland.
Her appointment follows the firm’s recent recruitment of Michael Kelly as a principal associate in the banking and finance team.
Rebecca Mauleverer, national head of Shoosmiths’ banking practice, said: “The addition of Anna Vangrove to our leading national banking and finance practice takes us to an 11-strong partner team with over 40 legal advisers.
“We can now cover transactions spanning England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland seamlessly, be they real estate finance, asset based lending, leveraged finance, general corporate lending or bespoke asset finance.”
Ms Mauleverer added: “Anna is an energetic and ambitious banking partner with a proven track record for winning work and developing strong client relationships.
“Her strong real estate finance and energy finance experience and wide network of relationships in the finance community make her ideally placed to support the growth of both our real estate and corporate practices in Northern Ireland as well as our banking and finance practice nationally.”
