Dewey & LeBoeuf has appointed its first London managing partner since the 2007 merger of Dewey Ballantine and LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae.
The firm has appointed litigation and restructuring specialist Peter Sharp as managing partner of the London office, effective immediately. Sharp was formerly the London managing partner of LeBoeuf.
Sharp will chair Dewey’s London policy committee, the nine-partner group the US firm launched last year to advise on strategy and oversee the UK office’s development as an international hub.
Dewey has also created two new senior management roles in the US, appointing litigation partner Ralph Ferrara and M&A specialist Mort Pierce as vice chairs.
Dewey’s chairman Steve Davis said the management positions were a “first step” in helping the firm work in a “more effective an integrated” manner, with a “more coordinated approach to business development activity across practices, sectors and regions”.
