On the BLP side, the key names are international arbitration group head George Burn, who joined from Vinson & Elkins RLLP, Roman Khodykin, who is 'a great strategist', and Carol Mulcahy. Work highlights include acting for Vibe Syndicate Management, the run-off manager of Lloyd’s Syndicate 994, as respondents in arbitration proceedings commenced by another syndicate seeking reinsurance payments it alleged were due as a result of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre. Michael Polonsky left the firm. Ania Farren joined Vannin Capital in August 2018 and David Robertson moved to White & Case LLP in October 2018. Robert Douglas left the firm.
