Andreas Junius, a private equity specialist with experience in sharia-compliant deals, resigned from Clifford Chance on Friday (3 March). He is German and US-qualified and will work in Dechert's New York and Frankfurt offices.
Junius has been a partner at Clifford Chance since 1986 and was formerly head of Pünder Volhard Weber & Axster's New York office before it merged with the magic circle firm.
