Dechert construction head quits for Duane Morris

Charles Brown, the head of Dechert’s City construction practice, has become the latest partner to exit the firm, moving to the London office of Philadelphia’s Duane Morris. Brown, who has been at Dechert since 1996, specialises in construction projects and litigation. He advised the Kingdom of Bahrain in the Sheikh Isa Airbase dispute and the architects on the London Eye. The hire brings to eight the number of partners in Duane Morris’s London outpost.
