  • This is never going to happen. Camille's move is likely to be motivated by money. Good luck to him but thats career suicide. Dechert doesn't have a Middle East strategy and Gavin and Chris will not defect to such a firm. Wishful thinking on Dechert's part. It's a sad state of affairs for Dewey & LeBoeuf.

  • Anonymous | 16-Apr-2012 5:11 pm is right about Abousleiman and Dechert - Gavin is a good guy and will hopefully land on his feet in the UAE. Its unfortunate for the individuals involved but the writing has been on the wall for at least 3 years.

  • Having worked opposite them on deals, I can say Dechert will have their hands full. However, these two London partners are a force to be reckoned with. Very tough negotiators and some of the best operators in emerging markets capitals markets at the moment.

  • This is very sad. Like watching a train crash. A lot of people are going to get hurt by all this. We must now have reached melting point; the point when major clients become seriously concerned about giving a firm new work.

  • Maybe this is LaBouef leaving Dewey and not a capitulation?

  • I think the London market is going to have to prepare itself for a new rescue mission. Not on the scale of Halliwells, but even so, there will be a lot of junior lawyers and staff needing a home very soon. It behoves the firms here to help if they can, especially if there are any trainees at the D&L office in London.

  • This will be the 3rd firm in 4 years for Gavin Watson. All was not well at the UAE office anyway, with Gavin loosing the title of managing partner already. Dechert will have there hands full with this one. Taking the whole office it seems now, for the second time. Also very annoying for clients.
