(Miami, FL – October 28, 2020)—FisherBroyles, LLP, the first and largest distributed law firm in the world, is pleased to welcome Jamil French who has joined the Firm in Miami.

Jamil is a securities lawyer whose clients include emerging and established Hedge Fund and Private Equity managers, private deal sponsors as well as institutional investors seeking exposure to the late stage pre-IPO “secondaries” market.

Jamil joins as the Firm continues to increase its headcount in the U.S. and U.K. and explores expansion into the Middle East and Asia.

Jamil began his career as a corporate lawyer at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP and later at Seward & Kissel LLP, where he represented private funds, blue chip companies, investment banks and other institutions. He later served as Associate General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Sandell Asset Management Corp., a multi-strategy hedge fund manager, and as Director and Senior Counsel at Pershing LLC, a BNY Mellon company.

Jamil is Chairman of the Hedge Fund Association’s Strategic Investor Committee and holds Series 7 and 63 securities licenses. In 2018, Institutional Investor Magazine named Jamil as a Hedge Fund Rising Star, and the Minority Corporate Counsel Association named him a Rising Star in 2015.

Jamil is admitted to practice law in Florida, New York and before the United States Supreme Court. He received an A.B., cum laude, from Princeton University in 1997 and a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2001.

Michael Pierson, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Global Corporate practice, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Jamil in Miami. He is a highly accomplished and distinguished securities lawyer who will make an invaluable contribution to both the Firm and clients alike.”

Jamil French said:

I was drawn to the Firm’s business model that eliminates the costs and inefficiencies of the traditional ‘Big Law’ model resulting in lower billable rates. FisherBroyles provides an attractive alternative to traditional law firms in the current economic environment, as clients look to cut costs and seek value.”
