Dewey has just raided Milbank for a bunch of four partners, including heavyweight Michael Fitzgerald (see story).
Over the past few months, thanks to its record year financially in 2010, Milbank has been hiring lawyers like Premier League footballers hiring superinjunction specialists.
For once, the direction is the other way. And it looks like quite a coup for Dewey.
Fitzgerald, for starters, was Milbank’s global securities group, global corporate group and Latin America practice group chairman. Busy man.
The group also includes Taisa Markus, the vice-chair of Milbank’s corporate securities group, who Dewey’s press release claims can “conduct business in English, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and Ukrainian”.
The Lawyer believes that is just showing off. But respect to Dewey, all the same.
