Clifford Chance hires partner and senior associate for European high-yield push

Leading international law firm Clifford Chance announced today that Michael Dakin, Chief Legal Officer of Future Group, a Dubai-based holding and investment company and former Clifford Chance partner, is to return to the firm's European high-yield team in September 2010. He will also be joined on the team in London by senior associate Jeremy Traster, from Cahill Gordon & Reindel's New York office.
Michael, who has worked at Future Group since August 2009, joined Clifford Chance as a partner in 2005 after spending seven years at US firm Cahill focussing on high-yield and leverage finance transactions. He is a US-qualified lawyer with extensive experience in high-yield transactions in both Europe and the United States, who has worked on a multitude of transaction including sponsor, issuer and underwriter mandates. His previous experience includes advising the banks on shipping group CMA CGM's sale of €500m senior notes, Mexican property developer Urbi Desarrollos Urbanos' $150m issuance of senior guaranteed notes and many high-yield style loan agreements on behalf of both banks and issuers.
John Connolly, Head of Clifford Chance's US Securities Group, comments: "Building our European high-yield practice is a key strategic goal for the Firm and we are delighted to welcome two new members to our team. We see this becoming a viable long-term market in Europe, and will continue to invest in talent in this area."
"High-yield funding is and will become increasingly relevant to our broad European private equity and banking client base, and the market will favour law firms able to handle both the bank and bond sides of this work. Our growing team complements our market leading banking practice and underlines our focus on delivering what clients need."
Clifford Chance's four partner high-yield team in London has substantial experience in European high-yield transactions acting for both issuers and underwriters. The team also works closely with the New York high-yield team and the market-leading high-yield practice in Asia.
