Dibbs partner quits to join Linklaters

The steady stream of Dibb Lupton Alsop partners leaving the firm in last few months has continued, with the move by banking partner Gideon Moore to Linklaters & Paines.

Linklaters banking partner Doulla Stavrou says Moore “saw the opportunity” and approached Linklaters, which was keen to expand its banking practice.

Banking head Haydn Puleston Jones was “delighted” that Moore would be joining the London team, which already has 52 fee earners, including 17 partners.

“His broad ranging experience and proven skill will be a tremendous asset. His arrival plays an important part in our plans to expand considerably our presence in the market.”

Moore, who specialises in syndicated loans, acquisitions and trade finance, and Islamic finance, starts at Linklaters in February. Before joining Dibbs, he was an assistant solicitor at Clifford Chance.
