Conway Joins Jones Day Banking & Finance Practice in London


Law firm Jones Day announced that Brian Conway joined the firm as a partner in the London Office, as a member of the Banking & Finance Practice. Conway was previously a partner in Latham & Watkins’ Finance Department in London.

“Brian will prove to be significant boost to our finance capability in London,” said John Phillips, partner-in charge of Jones Day’s London Office. “He is highly experienced in leveraged acquisition finance, which will be beneficial to our global clients as they look to execute deals in Europe’s largest financial hub. The City is a magnet for major multi-jurisdictional financial transactions and Brian has taken a lead role in some of the most significant leveraged financings led out of London over the past decade.”

Conway has nearly 20 years of experience acting for banks, financial institutions, and borrowers on a broad range of domestic and international cross-border financing transactions, including leveraged finance, Islamic finance, and general banking matters. He has a particular focus on acquisition finance. Prior to Latham & Watkins, he spent 13 years at White & Case, where he served as a partner and helped to build out the firm’s bank finance practice in Singapore and to establish the firm’s leveraged finance practice in Asia.

Conway advises borrowers, banks, and funds on senior, mezzanine, and subordinated debt financings across a broad range of industry sectors. He also acts on the refinancing of finance transactions, and has considerable experience of working with high yield bondholder committees.

Conway attended law school at The Incorporated Law School of Ireland.
