LONDON – Multidisciplinary advisory firm Dentons Global Advisors has hired Andrew Jaques as a partner within its capital markets advisory offer in London.
Jaques joins after more than 12 years at MHP, where he was most recently executive chair of its capital markets advisory business and had also been CEO of its financial division.
He was previously a partner and CEO at Hogarth Partnership – which became MHP along with fellow Engine Group firms Mandate and Penrose in 2010 – for 10 years. Before that, Jaques was a corporate broker at global investment banks HSBC James Capel, BZW and Credit Suisse First Boston.
In his new role, Jaques will help clients navigate business transformations, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, capital raisings and other complex financial issues.
Dentons Global Advisors’ head of EMEA Deborah Scott said: “Companies around the world are looking for expert advisory services to help them navigate an increasingly complex series of business challenges. Andrew’s decades of capital markets experience ideally position him to advise clients as they undertake a broad array of corporate transactions.”
Jaques added: “I am excited to be joining Dentons Global Advisors at this important phase in the firm’s development. The team is really impressive; reflecting a broad range of different backgrounds and expertise that allows it to take a truly comprehensive approach to problem solving, an essential skill in a world where challenges are more interwoven than ever before.”
Dentons Global Advisors was set up in 2021 with a minority stake from Dentons, the world’s biggest law firm; it bought public affairs specialist Albright Stonebridge Group at the same time and European public affairs firm Interel a month later.
The firm has since hired a number of senior advisors around the world from strategic communications agencies including Edelman, FTI, Teneo, Kekst CNC and Finsbury Glover Hering. In October last year, it expanded to Latin America.
Next15 Communications bought MHP Group in March last year as part of its acquisition of Engine Group UK.
