Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP announces today the appointment of corporate partner Amerjit Kalirai, who joins the firm's Equity Capital Markets practice from Berwin Leighton Paisner.

Amerjit has a particular focus on public company takeovers, following a two year secondment at The Takeover Panel. He also advises on IPOs, secondary fundraisings and acquisitions and disposals for both private and listed clients.

Amerjit has been with BLP since 2005 and prior to that was at Allen & Overy. Between January 2007 and 2009 he was seconded to The Takeover Panel where he was responsible for regulating a wide variety of potential transactions, including recommended, hostile and competitive offers as well as secondary equity issues and other Takeover Code related matters.

Fieldfisher's Equity Capital Markets team have a client base of over 40 companies quoted on the Official List, AIM or PLUS markets, as well as a wide range of investment banks, brokers, sponsors and nominated advisers. The firm has a leading reputation for AIM work and Amerjit’s appointment will build on this, bringing additional expertise in public company takeovers.

His appointment is the 13th partner hire Fieldfisher has made this financial year and is part of the firm's wider strategy for focused growth in Corporate, IP and Technology and Regulatory.

Anthony Brockbank, partner and head of Equity Capital Markets at Fieldfisher said: "We are delighted to welcome Amerjit to the firm.
