Former PE co-head at Skadden returns to Ashurst
Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom's former co-head of private equity, Shaun Lascelles, is leaving the firm and returning after many years to Ashurst, where he was once an associate. Lascelles became a partner at Skadden in 2007. Earlier this year, his role as global co-head of private equity came to an end.
Lascelles had worked on several high profile deals while representing Vitol Group, since he joined Skadden 13 years ago. Allison Schneirov, partner in New York, will now lead the firm's private equity group.
Lascelles' previous stint at Ashurst lasted from 1999 to 2002.
