Pillsbury hires two in UK

US law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman has added two new faces to its London office in the shape of partner Simon Fielder and associate Caroline Grange in the firm’s Corporate & Securities Group.

Both Fielder and Grange arrive from Osborne Clarke where they worked in the areas of corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions, with a particular emphasis on the AIM market. In addition to acting on numerous AIM flotations, Fielder’s experience includes advising IT consulting services provider Spearhead Limited on its £20m admission to AIM; and advising FUN Technologies, an online gaming company, on a partial offer by Liberty Media, a deal which included the repatriation of FUN to Canada and the creation and the quotation of a new Canadian holding company on AIM.
