Joining from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, MacDonald counsels issuers and investment funds across industries in connection with private equity and debt financings as well as a diverse range of other transactional and corporate governance matters. He will work out of Bingham’s New York and Hartford offices.
“Jeff’s strong private equity and insurance M&A experience brings a valuable dimension for our clients with sophisticated legal needs,” said New York office managing partner Robert Dombroff.
“Jeff’s skills as a dealmaker in the insurance space is a natural fit for us,” added Hartford office managing partner Daniel Papermaster, noting Bingham’s insurance practice, headed by Hartford partner Hal Horwich.
For MacDonald, Bingham’s platform, talent, reputation and camaraderie attracted him to the firm.
“Bingham’s global reach and focus on professionalism, collegiality and teamwork among lawyers appealed to me,” MacDonald said. “There is a very real spirit of partnership at Bingham, and the firm’s platform is a great fit for my private equity and insurance clients who conduct business nationally and internationally.”
