Rossie E. Turman III explains to The American Lawyer his reasons for moving from Skadden to Lowenstein Sandler as partner and Chair of Lowenstein Sandler’s International Finance group, with seats in the firm’s Debt Financing group and The Tech Group: “If you’re trying to grow, align yourself with someone else that is trying to grow. … [I]f you’re trying to succeed, align yourself with someone else that is trying to succeed.” The article notes that Turman “will work closely with the firm’s Tech Group in representing companies based in emerging markets that have interests in the U.S.” He will lead Lowenstein’s efforts with respect to companies and funds located in and doing business with Africa. He has also actively engaged in civic endeavors and supported several charities on the African continent for nearly 30 years.
In Westlaw Today’s story about his joining the firm, Turman says his “move to Lowenstein would facilitate building out the ‘three-legged stool’ of … [my] … practice, incorporating cross-border transactions, finance and technology.”
