People’s bank / citigroup

Another nice deal for London-based Cleary Gottlieb partner Andrew Curran, who joined the firm from Lovells in 1997.

Slaughter and May scooped this deal from the jaws of Freshfields after it had a massive conflict – being the law firm of choice for both Powergen, through London, and E.ON, through merger partner Bruckhaus Westrick Heller Löber in Germany.

Legal Widow

I took Subjudice to aqua aerobics with me the other day, and she had a good laugh while we hoofed our way through an underwater Living la Vida Loca. Before the music started and we had to concentrate to avoid drowning, we all swished our way to the side of the pool to collect our […]
