Dechert has again reported robust revenue increases. The firm’s global figure for 2006 shows an increase from £315.93m in 2005 to £396.09m, a healthy rise of 27 per cent. UK revenue rose by 13 per cent to £48.98m from £43.85m.
The firm has identified competition as one of its target areas for London and demonstrated this with the hire of A&O telecoms partner Chris Watson, who joined Dechert’s competition practice in February 2006. At the end of last year the firm also bolstered its UK office with the hire of real estate finance partner Kathleen O’Donnell, who joined from LG.
Dechert also snared corporate partner Graham Defries and capital markets partner Wayne Rapozo from Weil.
