Greenberg Traurig adds capital markets partner from Chadbourne

Greenberg Traurig announced the arrival of Marc Rossell, former head of the capital markets practice group at Chadbourne & Parke.

Rossell joins the firm as a partner after eight years at Chadbourne. He will now lead Greenberg´s Latin American capital markets practice in New York. Rossell focuses on securities offerings and has been involved in landmark deals such as the privatization offerings by the Argentine government’s national oil and telephone companies, the privatization of the Peruvian telephone carrier, as well as many high-yield debt offerings and equity offerings of companies in Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela.

“Marc’s addition to our award-winning Latin American and Iberian Practice is part of our growth and development strategy to enhance the depth of resources for the practice,” said Patricia Menéndez-Cambó, chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Global Corporate & Securities Practice. “We are certain that Marc’s considerable capital markets experience, with particular focus on the Latin American region, will further complement our existing capabilities while meeting our clients’ complex needs. We are pleased to welcome him to the firm.”

“We’re delighted to have Marc join the Latin American and Iberian Practice,” said Yosbel A. Ibarra, co-chair of the Latin American and Iberian Practice. “With his deep knowledge and understanding of capital markets, Marc will add considerable value to our clients across the region and help us respond to the growing demand we’ve seen in this area.”

“I was drawn to Greenberg Traurig’s cross disciplinary platform and the value added proposition the firm provides to clients – local resources and the global reach of more than 1,950 attorneys in 38 offices worldwide in key areas of legal practice for sophisticated end users of quality legal services,” said Rossell. “The deep bench strength of the firm’s Latin American and Iberian Practice allowed me to make a move that is a win-win for me and for my clients.”
