Jones Day snagged three partners in May who do international transactional work. Ralph F. “Chip” MacDonald III and Aldo “Al” LaFiandra joined the firm from Alston & Bird and Timothy “Tim” Mann Jr. joined from Kilpatrick Stockton. MacDonald specializes in banking, mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets work and has represented a banking client doing financial services transactions in Tokyo, London and Sydney, Australia. LaFiandra is a lending lawyer who also does restructuring and bankruptcy work. He will help Christopher L. Carson lead the Atlanta office’s lending practice. Mann, a corporate lawyer, has represented clients in cross-border transactions and also has been a partner in Armada Venture Group, a venture capital fund based in Atlanta and Zurich, Switzerland. “We’re looking for lawyers in interesting practices who can use and meld with our international practices. We have a lot of clients in Atlanta who do transactions abroad,” said George Manning, the managing partner of Jones Day’s Atlanta office. Kathleen O. Currey has left Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker to join Parker, Hudson, Rainer & Dobbs. Currey represents financial institutions and will join the firm’s commercial finance team.
