Maclays hit by Latham’s private equity poaching

Latham & Watkins has lured Maclay Murray & Spens‘ private equity partner Graeme Sloan in a massive setback to the Scottish giant’s private equity ambitions in London. Sloan, who has been at Maclays for 15 years, is a rising star in private equity circles and appeared in The Hot 100 supplement earlier this year. He is expected to join Latham at the beginning of May. His clients include Candover, Bank of Scotland, Scottish Widows Investment Partnership and Dunedin Capital Partners. First revealed on 22 March
