SSQ is delighted to announce the placement of the Dickson Minto London private equity team with Milbank in London.
Milbank’s global head of corporate, Norbert Rieger, commented: ‘The addition of this team will significantly add to our ability to act for clients around the globe on private equity related transactions. It is a logical next step after our expansion in the PE space in the US, Germany and Asia.’
Alastair Dickson, co-founder of Dickson Minto, paid tribute to the outgoing practice: ‘I am very pleased that the London private equity practice of Dickson Minto will join Milbank – the partners, lawyers and other staff have been a close-knit group for a long time and it’s extremely satisfying to see their desire to stick together and continue to grow as a group. ‘The move will benefit our longstanding clients who will continue to receive the same high level of service from the same people but now combined with Milbank’s M&A and private equity practice in other jurisdictions as well as with the added advantage of its global expertise in a whole host of adjacent practice areas.’
SSQ Co-CEO Jonathan Field commented: “We are delighted to have worked with Milbank and the Dickson Minto team on this hire which builds upon our unrivalled track record in helping law firms build their private equity practices globally”
