Fladgate boosts AIM and life sciences practice with appointment of corporate team


Our team: Grant Gordon, Charles Wander, Nigel Gordon


Fladgate is delighted to announce the appointment of corporate partners Nigel Gordon and Chris Chrysanthou, who join from Fasken Martineau LLP, together with senior associate Zehra Kofturcu. It is anticipated that the incoming practice of the team will add significantly to Fladgate’s already extensive M&A and AIM practice, taking the firm into the top 10 of the AIM advisers rankings.

Nigel Gordon, who was head of Fasken’s corporate practice group in London, represents a number of growing companies, both public and private, and has been actively involved in the AIM market since its inception in 1995.

Chris Chrysanthou also focuses on capital markets and M&A in the life sciences sector, representing a range of entrepreneurial individuals in establishing and growing companies, both public and private. Chris acts for issuers, nominated advisers and brokers.

Both partners are recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers UK for their expertise in capital markets and natural resources.

Fladgate’s Chairman Charles Wander commented: “With a significant proportion of our clients being fast-growing and entrepreneurial businesses, Fladgate has wide-ranging experience of AIM and the standard listing segment of the LSE’s Main Market.  As such, we are natural fit for Nigel and Chris, and their clients.  We expect Fladgate’s team to be recognised as one of the leading AIM practices in the UK.  In addition, the significant experience that Nigel has gained through advising on the first central London-focused residential REIT to be admitted to AIM will also enhance our real estate and funds capability”.

Head of Corporate, Grant Gordon added: “We are delighted to welcome Nigel, Chris and Zehra to Fladgate.  Their experience of working on an international platform will provide real added value to clients of our capital markets and M&A practices, both of which have been particularly active recently”.

Nigel Gordon commented: “We are all very excited to be joining such a dynamic and progressive firm. We look forward to being able to offer our clients the wide ranging expertise that is available at Fladgate”.
