Debevoise promotes one in City, five in New York

Debevoise & Plimpton has promoted a total of six to the partnership in its corporate and litigation departments.

Only one of the six promotions was in the firm’s London office with litigation lawyer Karolos Seeger being made-up.

The remaining five promotions were in the New York office. Erica Berthou, Jordan Murray and Nicole Levin Mesard were all promoted in the corporate department while Catherine Amirfar and Sean Hecker were promoted into the litigation group.

Last year, the firm promoted five to the partnership, four in its New York headquarters and one in the firm’s Paris office. Three were promoted into corporate while litigation and tax both received one promotion each.
