Robin's practice focuses on leveraged finance, where he advises bank and non-bank lenders and private equity sponsors and borrowers. He also has experience of bilateral, club and syndicated corporate lending, re-financings, workouts and restructuring and real estate finance. He has developed significant expertise in the real estate, restaurant and leisure, transport and TMT sectors.

Fieldfisher Managing Partner Michael Chissick said:
"I am delighted that Robin has become the latest lateral hire to join our London office. He has a fantastic pedigree having worked alongside a number of high-profile clients, and we feel that his practice dovetails well with both our own finance team and a number of other key areas including our TMT and Hotels, Retail & Leisure sector groups. We will continue to strengthen our finance team."
