Foley Hoag is strengthening its capital markets platform with the addition of partner Steven Burwell, formerly of Deutsche Bank. He will be resident in the firm’s New York office.

Burwell will focus on corporate and securities law matters and public company representation across all industries, including technology, healthcare and life sciences.

Prior to joining Foley Hoag, Burwell had a nearly 16-year career at Deutsche Bank, holding various legal positions within the organization.
