NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2019 — King & Spalding today announced that Jonathan Arkins has joined as a partner in the firm’s Corporate, Finance and Investments (CFI) practice group in its New York office.
“We are building a premier structured finance practice that focuses on specialized structures across various asset classes,” said Todd Holleman, head of the firm’s CFI practice group. “Jonathan is an essential addition to that team because of his knowledge of the repurchase and supply chain/trade finance space for both U.S. and international banks that will further broaden our offerings to our clients.”
Arkins represents financial institutions, private equity funds and other institutional investors on bankruptcy safe-harbored financing transactions, repurchase transactions, securitization and supply chain and trade financing transactions.
“Jonathan is well known in the structured finance community, specializing in sophisticated structured and warehouse financing transactions,” said Carolyn Alford, head of the firm’s Financial Services industry team. “We’re excited to add Jonathan’s capabilities to our extensive financial services platform.”
Arkins joins the firm from Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer. He received his undergraduate degree and law school degrees from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
"King & Spalding’s global platform and the opportunity to work with a deep bench of top practitioners in structured and real estate finance are what drew me to the firm,” Arkins said. “I look forward to continue addressing clients’ complex capital needs.”
Eight new partners have joined King & Spalding’s New York office since the beginning of the year. They include Arkins, as well as Steven Rizzi and Ramy Hanna (intellectual property), Bernhardt Nadell (private equity), Peter Montoni and Roger Schwartz (financial restructuring) and Scott Levine and Christine O’Connell (real estate).
