Former Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer head of finance Perry Noble has joined DMH Stallard as a consultant.
The appointment comes as part of the DMH Stallard’s strategy of marketing itself as an alternative to established City firms.
Managing partner Tim Aspinall said Noble’s arrival was a “coup” for the south east firm, adding: “His experience in this sector is unique.”
Noble was head of finance at Freshfields between 2006 and 2008, and was heavily involved in the internal restructuring which saw the loss of around 100 equity partners.
After leaving the firm in April 2008 he also spent several months at former Freshfields client Babcock & Brown, which went into administration earlier this year.
Commenting on his role at DMH Stallard, Noble said: “The corporate and finance teams have an established platform from which to grow and I’m looking forward to helping them achieve greater recognition in the City and beyond.”
The hire comes after former Addleshaw Goddard real estate finance partner Richard Dinning was appointed as the new chairman of DHM Stallard, taking over from Derek Sparrow.
DMH Stallard has 54 partners and offices in London, Gatwick and Brighton.
