In brief: Top BCCI lawyer heads to Biddle & Co

BCCI lawyer Chris Mallon is moving from Lovell White Durrant to become a partner at Biddle & Co. Mallon, an assistant at Lovells, was a core member of the team working on the BCCI liquidation responsible for overseeing the creditors' meeting at Wembley Arena, and the English court hearings for approval of the Abu Dhabi settlement. Mallon, understood to be taking some BCCI business to Biddles, will join partners Jonathan Reardon, Roger Fink and Bill Dixon, leading the firm's insolvency and asset recovery group in what it describes as a “heavyweight combination”.
