PRESS RELEASE

In a further expansion of its Leveraged Finance practice, law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP has announced the addition of Neil Caddy as a partner in the firm’s Global Leveraged Finance Group, based in London.
Neil, who joins from Mayer Brown, advises some of world’s leading financial institutions on major acquisition financings and restructurings in the UK and Europe.  Neil is rated by the leading legal directories.
Marc Hanrahan, head of Milbank’s Global Leveraged Finance group, commented, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Neil as a partner into our practice as it continues to grow in line with client demand, particularly for bank – bond and transatlantic financing work.”
Suhrud Mehta, who heads Milbank’s Leveraged Finance practice in London, said, “Neil is exactly the kind of lawyer we need as we expand our offering around key clients in London. He has the right mix of technical and commercial abilities, honed on many of the major European leveraged deals. Neil also has significant restructuring expertise – valuable not only to our Leveraged Finance practice but also to Financial Restructuring.”
Neil is the third new partner to join Milbank’s London office in the past two months.  In May, Milbank brought on board Mark Stamp, a leading M&A lawyer, from Linklaters and in June, Nicholas Spearing joined from Freshfields to establish a top-tier competition/anti-trust practice in London.
Russell Jacobs, Managing Partner of Milbank’s London office, said, “We will continue steadily to grow in London at partner and associate levels and see great opportunities for our London lawyers in the coming years.”
“I am delighted to be joining Milbank, which has an excellent finance practice and a high calibre team in London,” Neil said.  “The team works on some of the largest and most interesting cross-border mandates, many of which tie in with its renowned capabilities in the securities (especially high yield) area and I look forward to bringing my experience to bear across the product spectrum.”
