Linklaters loses partner with key Carlyle Group relationship
Linklaters has lost partner Peggy Wang, who managed a key relationship between the firm and private equity house Carlyle Group in Asia. Wang departed for partnership with US firm White & Case in its Hong Kong office. Wang is a private equity specialist, and developed Linklaters relationship with Carlyle, which uses several firms in its dealings.
One year prior, former fellow Linklaters partners Ian Bagshaw and Richard Youle also departed to White & Case. Both Bagshaw and Youle had driven Linklaters to cut into the relationship with Carlyle that they had supported at their former firm, Clifford Chance.
