Stuart Morrissy arrives from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy

Hogan Lovells has continued to bolster its restructuring team by hiring debt capital markets and leveraged finance expert Stuart Morrissy from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy. Before his five-year stint at Milbank, Morrissy was at Weil, Gotshal & Manges for over a decade, where he cut his teeth on lending and capital raising in a restructuring context following the 2008 credit crunch.


Counting export credit and multilateral agencies as well as commercial and investment banks among his client roster, Morrissy prides himself on his cross-border capabilities, having spent two years in Milbank’s London office. ‘Some of the underwriter work I did involved government agencies and sovereigns around the world,’ he says, ‘so a very high percentage of my work is cross-border. When there’s a need, I can easily transition to doing London-based work for my new firm.’


Based in New York, Morrissy joins restructuring expert Doug Taber, who arrived in September from in-house at GE Capital. Hogan Lovells has also been strengthening its distressed corporate and finance capabilities in Los Angeles: it hired Rick Wynne, Bennett Spiegel and Erin Brady from Jones Day in April. (In a pleasingly symmetrical turn, all three had spent 2001-2009 at Kirkland & Ellis before joining Jones Day.)
