Energy head to lead McDermott, London

US firm McDermott Will & Emery has appointed energy partner Doron Ezickson to run its London office.

Ezickson, who is co-head of the international energy practice, takes over as London office head from David Dalgarno. Dalgarno said he was “delighted” to be standing down and returning to practice in the employment group, as well as taking up a position on the firm’s five-member compensation committee.

Ezickson has also been appointed head of McDermotts’ European practice in a duel role designed to help expand the European network. He said: “There’s no doubt that London will be a key driver in helping us to deliver our growth strategy, and I’m excited by the prospect of leading this effort.”
