Her experience spans several industry segments, including energy, general industrials, and technology.

“Jane is an accomplished lawyer who has worked on significant M&A transactions,” said Michèle Penzer, Office Managing Partner of Latham & Watkins in New York. “As the New York office continues to grow in a number of areas, including private equity and strategic M&A, we are thrilled to welcome Jane back to the firm.”

“Jane’s practice is a perfect fit for our corporate ambitions in the US and globally. We are focused on building the premier public M&A and private equity practice around the world, advising major listed companies and the world’s leading private equity firms and their portfolio companies on their complex business and legal needs. Jane’s boardroom experience, commercial approach, and mix of skills strongly support our growth in New York, and her arrival marks another step forward in achieving our goals,” added Marc Jaffe, Global Chair of Latham & Watkins’ Corporate Department.

“We continue to see increased demand and opportunities in all areas of our New York M&A practice with a diversity of clients, both public and private,” said David Allinson, Co-Chair of Latham’s Corporate Department in New York and M&A partner. “Jane’s experience advising on high-stakes M&A adds further depth to our platform.”

“We are delighted to add someone of Jane’s stature to our practice, as we are increasingly working on M&A matters that require substantial support across practice areas and geographies,” said Kathleen Walsh, Global Vice Chair of Latham & Watkins’ Corporate Department. “Jane’s expertise will be of tremendous benefit to our clients not only in New York, but around the globe.”

“I started my career at Latham and I know the culture well. I’ve been excited to watch the firm’s strong growth and the execution of its strategy over the years. I am thrilled to rejoin the team and to be a part of the firm’s continued success in New York and beyond,” said Greyf.
