Law 360, The Legal Intelligencer, Bloomberg Law, Reuters Daily Docket and the Pittsburgh Business Times were among the national and local media outlets that covered the recent arrival of McGuireWoods partner Jon R. Mooney, who joined the firm’s debt finance practice in Pittsburgh.
Mooney comes to McGuireWoods from PNC Financial Services Group Inc., where he served as managing chief counsel for corporate banking and capital markets. He was responsible for legal coverage in several diverse banking sectors, including large corporate finance, asset-backed finance, public finance and asset-based lending.
That experience lends itself well to his new role, Mooney told Law360, because he sees the whole picture of a deal.
“I missed the excitement of having a transaction start, working on it and ultimately closing … and McGuireWoods is just such a powerhouse in financial services law, it was the logical choice and the best choice,” Mooney told Law360.
Mooney told The Legal Intelligencer, an American Lawyer Media publication, that he wants to build on McGuireWoods’ position in syndicated, structured and asset-backed finance and he brings a unique perspective based on his banking experience.
Secured Finance Network, Global Legal Chronicle, Fintech Finance News and Corporate Counsel Business Journal also published announcements on Mooney’s arrival.
