As Milbank celebrates its 40th anniversary in London, Legal Business has published an interview with co-managing partners, Julian Stait and Suhrud Mehta. The feature explores how the firm has grown over the years to become one of the strongest elite global law firms in the City – looking back at recent key developments, such as high-profile lateral hires and strong financial performance, and looking to the future.
Mr. Stait noted: “Milbank’s great appeal is that we are one of the very few firms that has been able to create a truly leading transatlantic proposition across many of our practice areas, where we not only operate at the highest levels in each of those markets – New York and London – but we have a track record of picking up the best transatlantic mandates, whether transactions, litigation or investigations. And to do that within a truly collegial environment is very special.”
Mr. Mehta stated: “We’ve had many successful years, year-on-year and...we remain one of the strongest US law firms operating in London. We’re celebrating our 40th year in London this year.”
