Law firm Nixon Peabody has named veteran partner Craig Mills as head of its global finance practice, which it plans to expand, the firm said today.
Mills represents banks and financial institutions, borrowers and other debt capital players. His practice includes securitization, structured finance and leveraged finance, as well as private equity, M&A and asset finance. He assumes leadership of the global finance group from Mats Carlston.
In June, Carlston led a large group of finance and corporate attorneys from Nixon Peabody that joined law firm Pillsbury’s New York office. Carlston is now the head Pillsbury’s leveraged finance team.
Nixon Peabody business department Chairman Philip Taub said in an announcement that expanding its global finance practice, which currently has 65 attorneys, is a strategic priority for the firm.
Nixon Peabody has approximately 700 attorneys in 17 offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
