LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae has bolstered its London practice further, this time by raiding Debevoise & Plimpton to hire star arbitrator Arthur Marriott QC and litigator Deborah Ruff.
The two appointments from Debevoise follow LeBoeuf’s hire of senior counsel Steven Beharell in May from Coudert Brothers, prompting the subsequent departure of the rest of Coudert’s London partnership to Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe.
The loss of the firm’s star arbitrator and former head of its commercial dispute resolution practice in London is a significant blow to the firm which considers litigation a core practice area.
Marriott joined Debevoise in July 1997 soon after he became one of the first two solicitors to become Queen's Counsel. He most recently assisted Debevoise to close a two and a half-year international dispute between Telekom Malaysia and the government of Ghana, in which he advised the government of Ghana.
Both Marriott and Ruff join LeBoeuf as partners, bolstering the firm’s London office to 20 partners. Ruff was previously a senior associate at Debevoise.
