Investment bank Moelis hires Senior Partner from Linklaters

Global investment bank Moelis & Co has boosted its mergers and acquisitions capacity with the hire of high profile lawyer David Cheyne. Cheyne joins Moelis in the new position of vice chairman in its investment banking unit for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Cheyne was the global head of Linklaters' corporate department from 2000 to 2005 and was then elected senior partner in 2006, for a five-year term. Mark Aedy, head of Moelis’s investment banking division in the Emea region, said: "David will be acting as senior counsel, fostering new relationships and strengthening new ones. He is well-connected globally as well as in Europe. He will also be involved in ensuring technical excellence across our deals - including large-cap cross-border activity." He continued: "We will continue to hire as it is an attractive time to invest. It is likely we will bring more people in next year than we have this year and are targeting those with successful careers who want to be part of building a successful, entrepreneurial business."
