Milbank Launches General Counsel Blog


Milbank LLP is pleased to announce the launch of the Milbank General Counsel Blog. The blog will serve as a crucial resource for general counsel and cover a range of topics of interest to US general counsel and in-house attorneys.

Led by Milbank’s Corporate M&A, Private Equity, Capital Markets, Financial Restructuring, Executive Compensation, Enforcement and Litigation & Arbitration, Tax, Antitrust and CFIUS groups, a team will contribute blog posts on timely issues including activism, benefits, capital markets and corporate disclosure, Delaware law, enforcement, proxy preparation, proxy advisor positions, tax and more.

The first blog posts cover topics including: FTC and DOJ’s temporary suspension of the HSR Act; use of COVID-19 or pandemic-specific provisions in business covenants; the Department of Labor’s new rules on ESG investing and voting for retirement and pension funds; and proxy voting guidelines and policy updates for 2021.

Global Corporate partner Neil Whoriskey said: “We understand that the issues facing corporate clients, including but not limited to transactional matters, have grown more complex and interconnected over time, and we have launched the Milbank General Counsel Blog with this in mind. The blog leverages the expertise of a multidisciplinary team of attorneys to provide general counsel with easily digestible and shareable information on the key issues that matter most to their organizations.”

Mike Shah, Executive Compensation and Employee Benefits partner added: “We are thrilled to launch the Milbank General Counsel Blog, which we hope will be a valuable asset for general counsel as they navigate pressing M&A and corporate governance challenges in the year ahead. Our bench of talented attorneys is deeply committed to ensuring that corporate clients are well-equipped with the high caliber legal advice and support they need to grow their organizations, and the launch of this resource further underscores that commitment.”
