Patton Boggs LLP has continued to expand its New York team with the hiring of Pamela Robertson, a former partner at Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP.
In October, Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm Patton Boggs launched a public finance team around four former Edwards Wildman lawyers. Robertson will join the private funds and finance practices, the firm said in an announcement Thursday.
“For several months, we have been saying that we would continue to acquire talent in key practice areas where Patton Boggs is strong or poised for growth,” Edward Newberry, managing partner of Patton Boggs, said in a press release. “Bringing Pam on board with her experience in public finance and private fund investments is yet another step in that strategy.”
Patton Boggs hired Alphonso Tindall, Jr, Sani Williams, Deborah Hartmann Henry and Alethia Nancoo, all former Wildman lawyers last month to spearhead the firm’s expansion into public finance and infrastructure deals. Edwards Wildman was ranked 14th among bond counsel in 2012, providing services to $5.74 billion in par amount of deals.
Robertson has experience representing public pension funds and institutional investors in the realm of private equity, venture capital and other alternative investments, Patton Boggs said. She advises investors and portfolio companies on acquisitions, dispositions and mergers, according to the firm.
