Dewey is taking employment partner Mitchel Pahl from Alston & Bird for its New York office.
Concurrently, it has swooped on Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer for the second time this week to take corporate partner Thomas Schmuck for its Frankfurt office. In adddition a Latham & Watkins senior associate, Kai Andreas Schaffelhuber, will join the Frankfurt office at the end of the month.
The three hires follow those of the three London-based lateral partners Dewey took on at the end of last week, as first reported in The Lawyer (30 April). The firm took two other Freshfields partners, equity capital markets (ECM) partner Carlo Kostka and Alastair Crawford, who will launch Dewey’s litigation capability in the UK. It also hired Lee Parker from recruiter Global Legal Search who was previously an ECM partner at Linklaters.
