Dentons private equity leaders jump to Akin Gump and Proskauer
Dentons saw two leaders depart from its City private equity practice, with Igor Krivoshekov heading to Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld and Eleanor Shanks departing for Proskauer Rose. Both Akin Gump and Proskauer are rapidly growing their City presence with increased headcount.
Krivoshekov and Shanks worked closely with one another at Dentons. Krivoshekov was previously with Dewey & LeBoeuf before joining Dentons, and Shanks held prior positions at Norton Rose Fulbright and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
