Reed Smith appoints leveraged finance partner in London

Law firm Reed Smith has appointed leveraged finance partner Ben Davis to its UK finance practice.

Davis (pictured), previously at Travers Smith, will join the firm’s London office on 18 March.
 
Travis’s practice focuses primarily on leveraged finance; he also advises on corporate facilities, refinancings, debt restructurings and general banking matters. His clients have included private equity sponsors, corporate borrowers, financial institutions and alternative lenders.
 
His recent representations include a number of debt funds and alternative lenders participating in the leveraged finance market (involving senior, unitranche, mezzanine and PIK facilities). He will draw on Reed Smith’s full-service capability in London, including strong corporate, private equity, tax and regulatory teams.
 
Davis says: “Reed Smith’s investment in its London financial industry group is clear: the team has grown by 60 per cent in the last three years. The firm’s global platform provides me with a new and exciting challenge, where I can continue to develop my leveraged finance practice.”
