Clifford Chance appoints Paul Seraganian as Regional Practice Area Leader - Tax, Pensions and Employment in the Americas

New York: Leading international law firm Clifford Chance has appointed Paul Seraganian as the Regional Practice Area Leader of its Tax, Pensions and Employment (TPE) practice in the Americas. Seraganian assumes the position on May 1, replacing David Moldenhauer, who is retiring from the partnership at the end of his term on April 30.

Seraganian, a partner with the firm since 2021, brings to this leadership role 22 years of extensive experience advising a broad range of clients across industries, with a particular focus on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, financings and restructurings.

"Since joining us, Paul has formed strong connections with his colleagues in the Americas and across the global TPE network. These relationships ensure our clients experience the most joined-up and sophisticated advice in the market. I'm excited to work with Paul and the team in the years ahead and to continue the excellent momentum we have enjoyed under David's leadership," says Pablo Serrano, the firm's Global Practice Area Leader for TPE.

Moldenhauer adds, "It has been an honor leading the team -- I am very proud of their outstanding ability and market-leading accomplishments. Paul's ability to build strong networks across practices, coupled with his enthusiasm to grow and develop our junior attorneys sets a solid foundation for the team's continued success and growth."

Seraganian says, "It's a very exciting time for us right now with current market dynamics and I know that the Americas TPE group will play a vital role as we go forward. Thanks to the strong foundation we've built under David's leadership and the exceptional people we have in our local and global teams, I am confident that our TPE practice will continue to be a source of strength for the firm."

Before joining Clifford Chance, Seraganian served as New York Office Managing Partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.
