Merrill Lynch has hired Helen Oldfield, v.p. in the legal department at Credit Suisse First Boston in London, in a similar role. Sid Kurth, head of European debt markets council for Merrill in London, said Oldfield will be a replacement for Robert Webster, director, who recently joined Bank of America (DW, 7/7).
Oldfield starts at Merrill on Nov. 1. At CSFB, she reported to Edmond Curtin, managing director. Curtin and Oldfield did not return calls.
