Milbank ‘refines’ HK India team with Clearys corporate hire

Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy has hired India group lawyer Sanjeet Malik as an of counsel in its Hong Kong office from Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton where he was an associate.

Malik (pictured) would help coordinate Milbank’s India practice and work on corporate, private equity and restructuring transactions, the firm said in a press release.

Milbank’s Washington-based India practice head Glenn S. Gerstell commented in the press release: “We have seen an increased amount of work coming out of India. Since foreign law firms are not authorized to have an office there, we needed to build our resources nearby to meet the demands of our clients – whether companies located in India or strategic or financial investors outside of the country.”

He added that the Malik’s joining Hong Kong would help “refine our focus on India”.

Malik, who is not qualified in India but speaks Hindi, completed his US law degree from Cornell Law School in 2001.
