Related Topics

Private funds partner Ajay Pathak has been appointed as the next London co-chair at law firm Goodwin Procter, according to a report by Law.com. The appointment comes as the firm is seeking larger premises to accommodate its expansion in the UK capital.

Pathak, who succeeds Paul Lyons who is standing down after a long tenure, will join current co-chair private equity partner Gemma Roberts who took on the role last year. 

Pathak joined Goodwin as a partner in the private equity group in 2017 from King & Wood Mallesons, having spent 15 years at KWM, until the firm collapsed in late 2016. His practice focuses on the establishment, management and regulation of private investment funds across a range of alternative asset classes.

Lyons, a real estate partner, who first joined the firm in 2013 from Travers Smith, and was first appointed co-chair in 2017 alongside Samantha Lake Coghlan, will be continuing as a partner in the real estate group.
