Fatema OrjelaSidley Austin LLP

Sidley Austin LLP continues to expand its private equity team in London, recruiting Paul Dunbar and Dan Graham from Vinson & Elkins RLLP in August 2021 as well as Robert Darwin from Dechert LLP in March 2022. The trio join a practice which is making a name for itself representing sponsors in acquisitions, investments and disposals across a range of sectors. The team is particularly active in advising US-based buyout houses, working alongside the firm’s offices in the US, and also handles a substantial volume of portfolio company M&A. Key contacts in the team include Eleanor Shanks, who ‘always delivers her deals on time and above expectations’, Fatema Orjela and Adam Runcorn.
