Ashurst global managing partner Paul Jenkins said he is pleased to welcome Mr Deed to the firm.

“It is with great pleasure we welcome Nigel to the M&A team,” Mr Jenkins said.

“We have a market leading corporate transactions team, already augmented with an outstanding infrastructure M&A practice, which will be further bolstered by Nigel joining the team.”

Ashurst corporate transactions practice group leader Mark Stanbridge echoed this sentiment, praising the professionalism Mr Deed has displayed throughout his career.

“Nigel has an outstanding reputation generally, and specifically in relation to infrastructure M&A,” he said.
