Jeremy Kutner


Jeremy Kutner is a partner in the European Corporate Group based in Shearman & Sterling’s London office. Jeremy has worked on a very broad range of corporate transactions, ranging from public and private M&A to equities work, joint ventures and restructurings. Many of the transactions he has worked on, especially over the last few years, have been ground breaking or market-leading in some way.

Recognised as an ‘Up and Coming’ lawyer by Chambers UK, clients have described Jeremy as “super sharp, highly measured and highly commercial,” and comment that he “really understands what the client wants.” He is also recommended by Legal 500 who note that he is “extremely hardworking, and relentless at getting the deal done without losing sight of the client’s objective.”
