Former Hammonds corporate associate Dearbhla Quigley has settled quickly into her new role at Hunton & Williams and is fast developing a fantastic reputation in the AIM arena.
Bright and hard-working, Quigley followed former Hammonds AIM rainmaker Martin Thomas to Hunton’s London office last September when he joined the US firm to help it significantly boost its City arm.
Since joining Hunton, Thomas’s protégée has played a pivotal role in helping the firm to build its AIM practice. And thanks to the pair’s hard work, Hunton has scooped its first instructions from four new broker clients: Charles Stanley & Co, Collins Stewart, Evolution Securities and KBC Peel Hunt. Prior to Quigley’s and Thomas’s arrival, Hunton had completed no AIM deals.
Not a bad achievement for a lawyer who is just over four years’ qualified.
