Dechert nabs Morgan Lewis securitisation team

Dechert has swooped on Morgan Lewis & Bockius, taking an eight-strong securitisation team that includes the former chairman of the group. Steven Molitor, who served as chairman of the securitisation group during his tenure at Morgan Lewis and as a partner for over 10 years, led the team of attorneys to Dechert’s Philadelphia office. The loss comes soon after the departure of two partners from Morgan Lewis’s West Coast practice.
