Debevoise Corporate Partner Takes up Residence in London

10 November 2022

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP today announced that corporate partner Nicholas Pellicani has relocated to the firm’s London office, effective November 2022.

Mr. Pellicani’s practice focuses on securities laws and capital markets transactions, as well as a broad range of corporate governance matters. He regularly represents issuers and sponsors in transactions such as initial public offerings, high-yield debt offerings, tender offers and private placements.

Mr. Pellicani’s arrival in London further strengthens Debevoise’s capital markets and finance practices in the UK and Europe, joining an experienced team that has advised issuers, sponsors and underwriters across a number of milestone transactions in the region.

Mr. Pellicani joined Debevoise in 2011. He received a J.D. from St. John’s School of Law magna cum laude in 2011, where he also served as editor-in-chief of the St. John’s Law Review and received a B.S. cum laude from Boston College in 2004.

Since opening in 1989, Debevoise’s London office – the firm’s second-largest – has developed remarkable talent and experience in Debevoise’s core practice areas. Market wise and expert in English and European law, the London office is an integral part of a closely coordinated global practice that includes colleagues in Europe, the U.S. and Asia.

In close collaboration with the firm’s other offices, London office lawyers build and coordinate specialized teams to advise on local and international matters in the UK and throughout Europe, as well as across emerging markets.
