Wilde Sapte suffers triple loss

Another three partners have resigned from Wilde Sapte following its loss of two partners to US firm Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft.

UK/Indian dual-qualified salaried banking partner Pratap Amin, who was with Wilde Sapte for over two years, is going back to India next March. It is understood he resisted the firms offers of equity partnership as he was unsure whether or not he would stay at the firm.

Financial services partner Nicholas Walmsley is to go to Eversheds Manchester office, having just married someone from the area.

Head of construction, Derek Tadiello, is to join construction firm Beal & Company. Wilde Saptes managing partner Steven Blakeley said that construction did not form part of the firms core activity and that Tadiello wanted to be in a firm where it was. Blakeley added: We were quite happy for Derek to continue here.

Wilde Saptes former head of capital markets John Walker and tax partner Russell Jacobs have been put on gardening leave before joining the new London derivatives practice set up by US firm Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft.
