Lazard Hires Noah Bulkin in London From Bank of America

Lazard Ltd. (LAZ), the largest non-bank merger adviser, hired Noah Bulkin from Bank of America (BAC) Corp. as a managing director advising U.K. companies on acquisitions.

Bulkin, who will be based in London, was a managing director in the Europe, Middle East and Africa advisory team at Bank of America, Lazard said in a Business Wire statement today.

He has “advised on many landmark transactions in the U.K. particularly in the energy, consumer, real estate and leisure sectors,” said William Rucker, chief executive officer of Lazard in London, in the statement.

Lazard reported a 24 percent increase in revenue to $199.1 million from mergers and acquisitions in the third quarter. It ranked ninth on the M&A league tables in 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
