Simons Muirhead Burton, well known for its commitment to social responsibility and pro bono work including the globally renowned Death Penalty Project, has enticed Rosalyn Breedy to move across from Wedlake Bell to launch a Funds and Private Wealth practice.
“ESG – which stands for the Environment, Social Responsibility and Governance – is increasingly at the top of the agenda for many fund managers and private investors, who want to go beyond mere regulatory compliance in their investment strategies and use their power to do good via ethical capital allocation and strategic philanthropy,” explains Breedy, who joins as Head of Funds and Private Wealth.
“The invitation for me to join Simons Muirhead Burton was a rare and exciting opportunity that will enable me to combine my legal practice in funds, financial services, and family offices, with a deep commitment to ESG objectives.”
Managing Partner, Razi Mireskandari, said “We are delighted to welcome Rosalyn to the firm. We are really pleased she has chosen to join us and are proud that Rosalyn will help to enhance our practice, provide more we can offer our clients and enable us to develop our leading corporate and commercial team even further. ”
