New York, June 7, 2017 – Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP announced that Alexandra Poe joined the firm as a partner in its Corporate Department. Poe joins from Reed Smith, where she was the co-chair of the Private Fund Formation and Counseling practice in that firm’s Global Corporate Group.

“Alexandra’s wide breadth of experience in investment management is in high demand, and she will be instrumental in providing the exceptional skills and services we offer to our clients in this area,” said Ted Mayer, chair of the firm. “We are pleased to welcome her and look forward to working together.”

Poe has over 25 years of experience in investment management practice, representing investment advisers and institutional investors, and also represents government contractors in compliance matters.
