Zander Joins Barnes & Thornburg San Diego Office

Troy Zander joined law firm Barnes & Thornburg to lead its new San Diego office as partner-in-charge. This is the firm’s second location in California, following the launch of the Los Angeles office in 2011.

“Troy brings an extensive practice that presents exciting growth opportunities for the firm in California and nationally,” said Bob Grand, managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg. “Since opening our Los Angeles office seven years ago this month, we’ve grown our California presence to more than 50 attorneys spanning numerous practices. With establishing a San Diego office, we look forward to building on this momentum.”

Zander will be a member of the firm’s Corporate Department, where he will focus on lender-side financing and advise clients on traditional commercial leveraged debt financings, venture debt financings and bridge loans. He has represented clients – including agents, lenders and participants – in credit facilities totaling more than $50 billon. Zander joined Barnes & Thornburg from Cooley.

“Barnes & Thornburg’s national platform and practice mix presents an ideal fit for my practice,” Zander said. “Barnes & Thornburg has built a solid reputation in Southern California in a relatively short period of time, and I’m excited to extend that brand into San Diego.”

Barnes & Thornburg has more than 600 attorneys and other legal professionals serving clients in 14 offices throughout the country.
