NEW YORK (February 2, 2016) — McDermott Will & Emery announced today that experienced capital markets lawyer Gary Emmanuel has joined the firm as a partner in its Corporate Advisory Practice Group in New York.
Mr. Emmanuel arrives from a nationally recognized securities and corporate law firm, where he was head of its Israel practice. He has extensive experience working on initial public offerings and follow-on capital markets transactions, including for life sciences and technology companies in the US and Israel.
“Gary Emmanuel is a first-rate and highly versatile capital markets adviser, combining excellent transactional skills with deep knowledge of key sectors, including life sciences and biotech, which make him an excellent complement to our leading healthcare deal team,” said Ira Coleman, partner and head of McDermott’s Corporate Advisory Practice Group.
“Gary’s longstanding Israel practice is a particular asset, given the substantial pool of entrepreneurial innovation that continues to make Israel such a significant market for deal flow and transactional opportunities,” added David Goldman, partner-in-charge of McDermott’s New York office. “We’re delighted to welcome him aboard.”
Mr. Emmanuel has more than 15 years’ experience representing US and Israeli companies in their respective markets. He has advised on a full spectrum of capital markets transactions including initial public offerings, private placements, PIPEs, bridge financings, registered direct offerings and secondary offerings.
He previously served in the Military Court of Appeals of the Israel Defense Forces and holds the military rank of legal officer.
Mr. Emmanuel received his LL.M. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and his LL.B. from Queen Mary College-University of London. He is admitted to practice in New York and Israel.
McDermott Will & Emery’s Corporate practice represents a wide spectrum of business interests around the world, from global corporations and industry leading companies to privately funded and entrepreneurial driven enterprises, as well as the financial institutions that support them. The Firm represents issuers and underwriters in the full range of capital market transactions around the world, ranging from small, unregistered private placements to multibillion-dollar public offerings.
