Simpson Thacher Adds Finance and Credit Partners in London

Paul Hibbert and Emma Serginson joined Simpson Thacher & Bartlett’s London office as partners, focusing on financing and credit matters across the infrastructure sector, among other areas. Both Hibbert and Serginson joined the firm from Weil, Gotshal & Manges.

“Paul and Emma each have substantial market knowledge and tremendous experience developing creative financing solutions,” Alden Millard, chair of Simpson Thacher’s executive committee, said. “Their addition to the team deepens our bench of substantial talent and adds firepower to our infrastructure offering. We are delighted to welcome them to Simpson Thacher.”

Recognized as a leading lawyer in both banking and finance and infrastructure by Chambers UK, The Legal 500 and IFLR 1000, among others, Hibbert advises companies, private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies on complex acquisition and leveraged finance matters across the infrastructure sector, including digital, transport, energy and energy transition, as well as social infrastructure.

Serginson, who previously spent time on secondment at the credit products legal team of J.P. Morgan in London, focuses her practice on infrastructure, leveraged acquisition finance, domestic and cross-border debt and other corporate finance transactions.

“Paul is widely regarded for his technical proficiency and commercial acumen on credit transactions across infrastructure asset classes — from regulated utilities and energy transition to digital and social infrastructure — and Emma is a rising star in the space,” Amy Mahon, co-head of Simpson Thacher’s energy and infrastructure practice, said. “They will be a perfect complement to the firm’s top-tier finance team, particularly as it continues to expand in London, as well as our growing global energy and infrastructure practice.”

“The addition of Paul and Emma reflects the firm’s ongoing support for the growth of the London office and further solidifies Simpson Thacher as a premier resource for clients seeking best-in-class advice on acquisition finance and other complex credit and debt deals,” Jason Glover, head of Simpson Thacher’s London office, said.
