Dewey & LeBoeuf insurance partner Francis Mackie, who joined the firm after more than a decade at Norton Rose, is leaving for Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge.
Mackie, who had been co-head of Dewey’s global insurance and reinsurance dispute practice group, joined the legacy LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae in 2006.
