Milbank raids Latham & Watkins for five-partner team

Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy has boosted its New York acquisition finance practice with the hire of a five-partner team from Latham & Watkins’ global banking and leveraged finance group. The team is comprised of Marc Hanrahan, Ronan Wicks, Marcus Dougherty, Patrick Flanagan and Lauren Hanrahan. Milbank chairman Mel Immergut said: "These lawyers bring an exceptional level of experience to Milbank having handled some of the most significant lending transactions in recent years. "Our expectation is that they will have an enormously positive impact on our traditionally strong banking and leveraged finance practice and enhance many other practice areas of the firm including financial restructuring, litigation, securities and corporate."
