Morrison &Foerster Adds Private Equity Real Estate Partner in London
Morrison &Foerster has appointed Oliver s’Jacob as a partner in the firm’s global Private Equity Real Estate (PERE) practice in London.
With the arrival of s’Jacob, Morrison &Foerster has expanded its global real estate practice to London, further strengthening its growing global offering. s’Jacob comes to Morrison &Foerster from Reed Smith, where he chaired their European Private Equity Real Estate practice. The addition of s’Jacob follows the arrival in late 2017 of Florian Ehrich, who joined to build out the real estate practice in Germany.
“Real estate investment has become increasingly global, and Europe is an important location for many PERE players, including many key clients,” says Eric Piesner, Asia managing partner and one of the global leaders of the PERE practice. “I’m delighted that, with Oliver joining us in London, we are able to offer our clients this additional sophisticated real estate expertise in Europe, and look forward to Oliver spearheading further growth in the real estate space in Europe.”
