Juliette Harrhy, an experienced M&A attorney, has joined Janas as a Managing Director. Her storied career with Hahn & Hahn, Kirkland & Ellis and Alston & Bird has focused on buy-side and sell-side transactions, representing Corporations, Private Equity Funds, Family-Owned Businesses and Individuals.
Juliette is joining Janas to apply her extensive background to focus on business strategies, due diligence, and family transition issues. Juliette has almost 30 years of experience with middle market transactions, in both in the US and Europe. She has observed that many clients would benefit from pre-sale advice to maximize the benefits of their contemplated transactions. As an Investment Banker, she brings an in-depth understanding of buyer and seller motivations, as well as knowledge of the legal issues that could prevent sellers from maximizing the return from their sale transactions.
Her legal practice included cradle to grave corporate counseling with a focus on transactions. She has led teams on purchase and sale matters with values from a few million dollars to more than $1.0 billion.
Juliette’s experience enables her to balance client priorities. She advises clients about the complexities of the legal process which require balancing seller and buyer requirements to complete mutually satisfactory transactions. Her expertise streamlines and expedites the sales process for clients and anticipates issues that she solves proactively.
Her legal career began in London, with a mid-sized law practice where she focused on corporate matters. Upon moving to the US, she was a member of the Financial Services Group at Alston & Bird, an Atlanta firm with offices in Los Angeles and other cities.
During her tenure as a Partner with Kirkland & Ellis in Los Angeles, Juliette represented Private Equity Groups in buy-side and sell-side transactions in the Consumer Products, Industrial, Medical, and Food Products Industries. She also has expertise in transactions for distressed businesses, including bankruptcy. Her clients included troubled companies in Energy, Telecommunications, and Food Service.
