Greenhill Hires Wachtell's Solotar as General Counsel

Greenhill & Co., the advisory firm founded by Robert Greenhill, hired Gavin Solotar from Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz as general counsel.

Solotar, 48, who will be a managing director in New York, previously was a partner focused on mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance and securities law at Wachtell Lipton, New York-based Greenhill said today in a statement. Solotar, who was at Wachtell Lipton for 20 years, also will help develop client relationships and advise on deals, according to the statement.

The investment bank is adding managing directors amid what Chief Executive Scott Bok, 53, has called a surge in recruiting opportunities. The firm said yesterday it hired Eric Mendelsohn from Bermuda-based Lazard Ltd. for Greenhill’s restructuring unit. Last month, Greenhill added Luca Ferrari from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Anthony Parsons from Deutsche Bank AG and Mats Bremberg from Citigroup Inc. to expand in Europe.

Solotar, who will begin work after Labor Day, “has a broad range of relationships, both in the corporate world and the legal community, as well as deep experience in structuring and negotiating complex transactions,” Bok said in the statement.

Solotar advised America Movil SAB, the wireless carrier controlled by billionaire Carlos Slim, on an agreement to boost its stake in Telekom Austria AG, as well as Lazard’s reorganization and 2005 initial public offering, Jeffrey Taufield, a Greenhill spokesman, said in an e-mail.
