Alternative law firm Rimon has expanded in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific in the first month of 2020 by making a trio of international hires from large law firms.

At the beginning of the year, the firm brought on Herbert Smith Freehills corporate partner Dirk Hamann in Berlin and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher banking and finance partner Richard Ernest in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. On Monday the firm announced another addition with the hire of Baker McKenzie capital markets attorney Andrew Reilly in Sydney. All three are opening offices for the cloud-based law firm, which launched in San Francisco in 2008, with Ernest pulling double-duty by leading the charge to open the firm’s London office, which is awaiting regulatory approval.
