O’Melveny & Myers’ storming entry into the London market three years ago has led to it securing a berth within the top 30 US firms in the City.

The remarkable performance was built on a platform of private equity fund formation and was spearheaded by former SJ Berwin partners John Daghlian and Matthew Hudson, who founded the office in 2004.

Last year saw the London office’s strong performance continue with mandates for major US clients Apollo and Coller Capital, as well as a role on the £10.3bn takeover of BAA by Spanish construction giant Grupo Ferrovial.
