US firm Weil Gotshal & Manges is strengthening its central European practice by poaching property partner David Dederick for its office in Budapest.
Dederick joins the firm from the Budapest office of Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn, where he was a partner. His practice covers property and general commercial work.
Joe Tortorici, managing partner of Weil Gotshal's central and eastern Europe operations, says Dederick is the firm's sixth new partner in the region this year. He adds: "We have a property practice in all three of our central European offices. It has been based out of Prague and Warsaw, and now it's evenly spread."
Dederick has been practising in the region since 1990 and has led transactions in Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic.
Last week The Lawyer revealed that Weil Gotshal is expanding into western Europe, with plans to open in four different countries.
