BLM Partners appoints Jeffrey Iverson as general counsel

European mid-market specialist BLM Partners has appointed Jeffrey Iverson as general counsel and a principal. 

In addition to his responsibility for all legal and compliance matters, Iverson will work closely with the founding partners to continue to develop BLM’s investment offering and deliver its strategy.

Iverson joins BLM from Nomura International, where he was an executive director in the M&A advisory and merchant banking legal department. In that role, he advised on the integration of certain businesses acquired from Lehman Brothers as well as providing legal and regulatory advice to the European and Middle East M&A and merchant banking groups.

Between 2004 and 2008 Jeffrey was an executive director at Lehman Brothers International in the investment banking legal department. Prior to joining Lehman Brothers, he was an associate attorney at Weil, Gotshal & Manges in London and at Cooley Godward in California.

Gary Long, president and chief operating officer of BLM Partners, says: “We are delighted that Jeffrey has joined BLM Partners. His legal and regulatory knowledge, as well as extensive experience within the financial services sector, will be a significant asset to the firm as it continues to grow and invest in European mid-cap companies.”

Iverson adds: “I am pleased to be joining such an entrepreneurial firm, which has a unique investment approach and an unrivalled level of skills and expertise within the partnership. BLM Partners is well positioned to capitalise on the opportunities arising from the current European marketplace.”
