Mayer Brown announced the addition of Kristine M. Koren as a partner in their Corporate & Securities practice. Koren, a highly regarded private fund formation lawyer, will be located in New York. She joins from Skadden Arps New York office.
Mayer Brown’s head of global Investment Management and Fund Formation group, John W.

She adds a dynamic and impressive component to our funds formation capability, to the immediate benefit of our clients in New York and elsewhere.”
Koren works with clients that are private funds, sovereign wealth funds, financial services firms, family offices, high net worth individuals and other asset managers. She advises them on a range of matters like seed investments in asset management firms, M&A, securities regulatory matters, and structuring and documenting international joint ventures.
New York’s partner-in-charge Richard A. Spehr added, “Following Iliana Kirova’s arrival in New York and the recent move to Mayer Brown by a fantastic team of capital markets lawyers, our successful recruitment of Kristine is additional evidence of our commitment to increasing the strength of our corporate capabilities in New York. Given New York’s prominence as a global center of finance, our new colleagues enhance our ability to serve our clients with capital markets and fund formation needs around the world.”
Koren earned a JD and LLM from Cornell Law School and an undergraduate degree from Harvard.
Koren said of her new position, “With its global platform and increasing strength in fund formation, Mayer Brown opens the door to significant new opportunities to apply my experience. In light of the firm’s strategic priority of expanding its already impressive fund formation capabilities, this was a compelling time to join Mayer Brown.”
