Michael McFall is leaving Dorsey after six years at the firm. His clients include technology giant Intel, Pearson and US private equity firm The Carlyle Group.
The hire of McFall follows the summer appointment of employment partner David Dalgarno as McDermott’s managing partner for London and completes a long search for a suitable corporate partner.

Neither McDermott or Dorsey returned calls for comment.
