Sotomayor joins the firm from Paul Hastings
King & Spalding has welcomed Marisa Sotomayor as a partner in its corporate, finance and investments practice group.
Based in New York, Sotomayor represents investment banks and institutional lenders, private credit funds, direct and non-traditional lenders, private equity sponsors and corporate borrowers in a wide range of domestic and cross-border leveraged finance and restructuring transactions. This includes cash flow and asset-based credits, acquisition financings and leveraged buyouts, syndicated transactions and bilateral and club deals. She also has experience in leading syndicated project financings.
“One of the best ways we can serve our clients is by collaborating across teams and capabilities to bring innovative solutions to the table,” said Sotomayor, who joins King & Spalding from Paul Hastings. “I know from having worked with many of my new colleagues and from the firm’s reputation generally that this approach to client service and legal practice is a hallmark of King & Spalding. I am very excited to see what we can do together to build on the firm’s excellent global platform for serving the lending and financial services industry.”
Sotomayor is ranked in Chambers USA 2022. She earned her undergraduate degree and her master of public administration degree from the University at Albany, State University of New York. She earned her J.D. from the Fordham University School of Law.
“Marisa is an excellent strategic and cultural fit for our firm and will be a key component of our practice’s continuing international growth,” said Todd Holleman, head of the firm’s CFI practice group. “She is a smart and well-connected lawyer with a strong reputation in the market and is energetic, highly-motivated, and team-oriented. She also is known and respected by many of the partners in our finance practice and highly valued by the clients we share.”
