Former Olswang partner joins Dorsey & Whitney in London
Olswang partner Fabrizio Carpanini, who spent 15 years at the firm until leaving at the end of the last financial year, is set to join Dorsey & Whitney in its London office. Carpanini had served in numerous leadership roles at Olswang, including head of the corporate group, head of the private equity group, and as members of the management and executive committees.
Dorsey & Whitney's London office is being led by Tim Maloney, who previously was partner at Eversheds. The office has not developed a private equity practice focused on the mid-tier market, something the firm has developed in offices in the US and Asia. Presumably, Carpanini will interface significantly with those offices as he develops the practice in London.
Dorsey & Whitney is reportedly also considering opening a location in Beijing.
Carpanini joins the firm on 1 November.
