McDermott Continues To Strengthen Transactions Practice With New Derivatives Partner In London


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the appointment of partner Vlad Maly to its Transactions Practice Group in London.

“We have long wanted to broaden the scope of our corporate derivatives offering in London and strengthen our global finance offering,” said Harris Siskind, Global Head of the Firm’s Transactions Practice Group. “The type of products Vlad advises on are often used by private equity funds and family offices, which will be invaluable to our international clients looking to do business in Europe and the United States.”

Vlad’s practice focuses on the use of complex capital markets and equity derivative instruments in the context of cross-border financings, M&A activity and other corporate transactions.

Vlad’s clients include global financial institutions, corporates, private equity funds, family offices, sovereign wealth funds, and asset management clients engaging in acquisitions and disposals of investments, non-traditional finance structures and portfolio risk transfers.

“Vlad is an outstanding lawyer with an exceptional corporate derivatives practice. I am very pleased to welcome him to the London office and Firm,” said Hamid Yunis, Managing Partner of the London Office. “In particular, Vlad’s practice will have great synergies with our private equity, financing and private client team, making him a great fit for us.”

The Firm has an outstanding reputation in corporate and M&A field, which is key for a success of a corporate derivatives practice,” Vlad said. “I very much look forward to working with my new colleagues in the private equity and private client groups as there are a lot of opportunities to cross-sell.”
