Jerome McCluskey and Felicia Hanson Ofori-Quaah Host Inaugural London Black Senior Lawyers Dinner


Leveraged Finance partner Jerome McCluskey and Project, Energy & Infrastructure Finance senior associate Felicia Hanson Ofori-Quaah hosted Milbank’s inaugural Black Senior Lawyers Dinner for clients in London. Attendees comprised senior in-house lawyers from leading international banks and financial institutions.

Given the lack of representation of senior black lawyers in the City (both in-house and in private practice), the discussion at dinner centered on how the group can collectively facilitate the retention and promotion of black lawyers as well as how to better share and implement ideas in the short term.

Also in attendance were Milbank associates Damilola Odetola, Darrell Hayes, and Jessica Savoie and Recruitment Manager Vanessa Harvey.
