Milbank Continues Global Corporate Private Equity, M&A Growth with New Partner Andrew Fadale in New York


Milbank LLP is pleased to announce that Andrew Fadale has joined the firm’s New York office as a partner in the Global Corporate Group.

"We are pleased to welcome Andrew to the firm,” said Milbank Chairman Scott A. Edelman. “Milbank is committed to offering clients a breadth of legal services to meet their needs, and that includes having access to top-notch M&A attorneys like Andrew. He is a savvy business-focused advisor with deep experience advising corporates and financial institutions on sophisticated M&A transactions. His arrival reinforces our commitment to providing our clients with the highest caliber of service to execute their most sophisticated deals. We are thrilled to welcome Andrew to our expanding M&A and Private Equity practices.”

Mr. Fadale has extensive experience advising private equity and strategic corporate clients on leveraged buyouts and distressed mergers and acquisitions. He has represented leading private equity investors in deals spanning a broad spectrum of industries and transaction structures, including deals in the automotive, manufacturing, aerospace and defense, mining, energy services and financial services industries. 

Norbert Rieger, Global Head of Milbank’s Corporate Group, added: “Over the last year, we have significantly expanded our corporate, M&A and private equity practices in our New York, Germany, London and Asia offices. Andrew’s addition is the latest in a group of additions of preeminent corporate and private equity partners across our global offices. His experience dovetails with the rest of our global team.”

Mr. Fadale joins Milbank on the heels of Messrs. Presutti and Diaz-Albertini. Since joining the firm just a few months ago, the team has advised on several high-profile deals including advising private equity firm Veritas Capital on the $7.1 billion take-private acquisition of Perspecta and on the sale of Alion Science and Technology to Huntington Ingalls Industries for $1.65 billion.

Milbank’s addition of Messrs. Fadale, Presutti and Diaz-Albertini reflects a significant additional step in the firm's development of its global corporate and private equity practice. Over the last year, Milbank added Neil Whoriskey in New York, Andrej Wolf in London, Barbara Mayer-Trautmann and Markus Muhs in Germany and Andrew WhanNeeraj BudhwaniDavide Mencacci and John Bona, in Hong Kong. In addition, Milbank elevated corporate partners Iliana Ongun and Aaron Stine, based in New York, to the partnership in January 2021. 

“I am excited to join Milbank’s growing New York corporate practice, and to rejoin my former colleagues, Richard Presutti and Antonio Diaz-Albertini,” Mr. Fadale said. “The firm’s respected team of corporate and financial restructuring lawyers, as well as its global reach and reputation for excellence, will help me to expand my practice and serve the firm’s clients on all manners of M&A transactions.”

Mr. Fadale joins Milbank from the New York office of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, where he was a partner. He received his law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law.
