Baker & McKenzie has boosted its global M&A and energy practices by mopping up two of the few remaining Coudert Brothers partners yet to find a home.
Richard Dean and Jonathan Cahn of the disbanding Coudert’s CIS practice have joined Bakers’ Washington DC office.
The pair, previously managing partners of Coudert’s Moscow office, specialise in the oil and gas industry and the CIS region. Dean founded the Moscow office in 1998, while Cahn founded Coudert’s Almaty office, the hub of Coudert’s energy and natural resources practice in central Asia.
Dean and Cahn are among the last Coudert partners to find new firms. Last week, Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw announced it had hired Coudert partner Paulette Vander Schueren, Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton recruited Edward Tillinghast and Dorsey & Whitney took on Brian McGunigle.
