Morgan Lewis Appoints New Managing Partners

Morgan Lewis announced the appointment of partners Ben A. Indek and Katherine G. Weinstein as co-managing partners of the firm’s New York office.

Indek focuses his practice on representing broker-dealers and their employees in governmental, self-regulatory organization, and state securities commission investigations as well as conducting internal investigations for financial services firms. He also counsels broker-dealers on regulatory and compliance issues, including the development and implementation of written compliance and supervisory procedures and new rules and regulations. Indek joined the firm in 1988.

Weinstein regularly advises financial institutions in connection with structuring and documenting financing transactions. She has extensive experience representing first and second lien lenders, mezzanine lenders, and equity sponsors and borrowers in a diverse range of debt financings, including acquisition, recapitalization and other leveraged financings, cash flow and asset-based financings, first lien, second lien, mezzanine and unitranche financings (including first-out, last-out financings), workouts and restructurings, and debtor-in-possession and exit financings. In November 2014, Ms. Weinstein joined the firm from Bingham McCutchen, where she served as co-managing partner of the New York office.

“We are thrilled to have Ben and Kate as joint leaders of our New York office, particularly at such an exciting time for the firm with our enhanced abilities to counsel and serve new and valued clients,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “Morgan Lewis is dedicated to delivering the highest quality results to advance our clients’ legal and business interests — from New York to Tokyo, London to San Francisco, Silicon Valley to Moscow, and points in between.”
