Dewey & LeBoeuf has lost a further two City partners, with recently-recruited private equity duo Mark Davis and Russell Van Praagh quitting to join McDermott Will & Emery.
Their departure brings the number of Dewey partners to leave this firm in 2012 to 54, with Los Angeles partner David Smith quitting last week to join Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth in Santa Monica.
A Dewey spokesperson confirmed that Davis and Van Praagh had resigned but did not comment further. McDermott was not immediately available for comment.
