Milbank hires NLS ‘04 partner Sinjini Saha from Cadwalader London + 3 to add volume to restructuring practice

Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy added former Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft partner and NLSIU Bangalore 2004 alumnus Sinjini Saha in London, as reported by Legal Business.

Saha is part of the team of four Cadwalader partners that were poached by Milbank including its global financial restructuring co-chair Yushan Ng. The other two partners are Jacqueline Ingram and Karen McMaster.

Saha had made partner from special counsel at Cadwalader in June 2017 after over two years with the firm, as we had reported.

Saha had begun her career at Delhi-based Daulet-Singh & Associates (which later turned into Platinum Partners) and had moved to Herbert Smith in 2006. Between 2007 and 2008 she completed an LLM at Columbia Law School as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, and then moved to Simpson Thacher Bartlett until 2015.

At Cadwalader she focused on financial restructuring and private equity, working on leveraged buyouts and other sale and investment transactions. Cadwalader is now left with 26 partners in London including six in restructuring.

Milbank’s Indian-origin London co-managing partner Suhrud Mehta told Legal Business, which in its report calls Milbank a “prestigious New York shop” that was never “quite gaining critical mass in London”, that the firm now stands as one of the largest financial restructuring practices in London.
