March 28, 2012 — New Partners Joseph Kosky and Jonathan Denton have joined the growing London Office of Locke Lord as the international Firm’s expansion plans continue. The two additional Partners add depth and experience to the Firm’s capabilities in commercial litigation and financial services and banking.
Kosky has a broad range of experience in all types of civil and commercial litigation and handles cross-border disputes, professional negligence claims, contract claims, civil fraud, intellectual property disputes and more. He has significant experience in heavyweight international litigation particularly involving clients based in the Middle East, including disputes involving foreign States, and has represented several large State-owned entities for many years. Kosky was formerly a partner with Rochman Landau (now Ashfords) in London.
Denton has many years of experience in a wide range of financial services and banking matters, routinely providing regulatory advice to both established financial institutions and new entrants developing business in the UK financial services sector. He also serves as editor of a book on mortgage regulation for broker and other intermediaries and has acted as a consultant on other publications. Denton also handles real estate and project finance deals. As a former Salans partner, he has a close affiliation with several of Locke Lord’s London team members, many of whom worked as colleagues previously. Most recently he served as in-house legal counsel with Berkeley House Investments Limited.
