Morgan Lewis is relocating one of its best-known partners from the US to London.
Employment partner Mark Dichter, a former chair of the American Bar Association’s labour and employment law section and the current chair of Morgan Lewis’ employment practice, plans to split his time between London and the firm’s US offices.
Morgan Lewis’ chair Francis Milone said it had become apparent that the firm and its clients, many of which were expanding outside of the US, would benefit from Dichter’s presence in London.
“Mark’s presence in London demonstrates the firm’s commitment to the continued growth and expansion of our practices in Europe,” Milone added.
Earlier this year Morgan Lewis announced it would focus its efforts in London on growing the firm’s corporate, employment and energy practices.
