Eamon Devlin recognised as the brightest lawyer in European capital markets.

April 14, 2014

It’s been a good week for the Devlin Family with Eamon  Senior opening a new complex in Culloville, Co Armagh while at the same time news breaks that his son Eamon junior has been recognised as the brightest lawyer in European capital markets. Eamon junior, aged 36 is the managing partner of MJ Hudson, London which he started from scratch.

Eamon, a co-founder of a specialist law firm, has taken an alternative approach in his choice of career path. He has been instrumental in setting up MJ Hudson from scratch to become a recognised brand in alternative assets with more than 200 asset manager clients. The firm is London’s first law firm focused on acting exclusively for private equity and hedge fund managers. Eamon co-founded the firm with Matthew Hudson, a former head of the London offices of both O’Melveny & Myers and Proskauer Rose, in 2010, and became managing partner aged 33.

In 2013, Eamon guided the firm through two law firm mergers in the space of three months, teaming up with Jersey’s Verras Law and hedge fund law firm MW Cornish & Co. MJ Hudson continues to hold big ambitions. It plans to open up to 10 offices in onshore and offshore jurisdictions, before listing in around four years’ time, making it one of the first firms to set out such a strategy. Speaking with his dad at the opening of his new complex it was very apparent to me that the whole family were very proud of his son’s achievement and quite rightly so..
