Orrick appoints M&A-focused partner

Orrick has appointed Paul Doris as a partner in London. Doris brings a strong focus on M&A and private equity, particularly in the energy and infrastructure sectors.

He is the 10th partner addition to Orrick’s European M&A and Private Equity team and the seventh partner to join the firm’s London office since 2016.
“Orrick is one of the most active firms in the global energy and infrastructure sector, and Paul adds deep experience in this rapidly transforming market. We’ve worked across the table from him for years, and we’re delighted to add him to our team,” says Anthony Riley, Corporate Regional Leader for Orrick’s European offices and the most active lawyer in UK M&A last year (Mergermarket).
Doris advises on domestic and cross-border transactions, with a focus on wind and solar portfolios. He has experience across Europe, particularly in Spain, as well as in Latin America, India, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. He has acted for the Riverside Company, Vortex (the European renewables platform managed by the private equity arm of EFG Hermes), Solar 21, Macquarie Capital, First State Investments, Vattenfall, Yushan Energy, Diverxia Infraestructuras, PGGM and BTG Pactual, among others.
“Growing our global M&A and PE platform in a way that is aligned with our focus on the energy & infrastructure, finance and tech sectors is a strategic priority. We’re excited to add another practitioner in London of Paul’s calibre,” says Ed Batts, Global Head of Orrick’s M&A and private equity practice. The firm ranked No5 for European private equity deal volume (Pitchbook) and #13 for global M&A deal volume in 2017 (Mergermarket).
“I was drawn to the firm’s global strategy and team. Orrick has a clear sector focus, global reach and a ‘one-team’ approach. I believe these elements, together with the firm’s constant focus on innovation, are what clients look for and value today,” says Doris.
