Lowenstein Sandler names new chair of International Finance Practice

Roseland-based law firm Lowenstein Sandler has hired a new chair of its International Finance Practice, it announced this week.

Rossie E. Turman III joined the firm’s New York office after 21 years at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, including 12 years as a partner.

Turman will be an integral part of the Debt Financing Group and Tech Group, the firm noted, with his practice focusing on complex business transactions and financings throughout the Americas, Asia and the EMEA — Europe, Middle East and Africa — region, including more than 20 African countries.

“I was drawn to Lowenstein’s entrepreneurial culture, with its established financing practice and market-leading representation of emerging-growth companies across its platform, but particularly within Lowenstein’s Tech Group,” he said in a statement. “The firm works to throw open the doors of private equity and venture capital to a wider audience that has been underrepresented in those spheres.”
