    Debevoise & Plimpton made good on its aim to strengthen its European litigation practice last year with the hire of Norton Rose’s former global head of dispute resolution Peter Rees, who moved to the firm’s London office.

    Another solid year for M&A saw Debevoise’s London team act on a £591m transaction, advising insurer Catlin Group on its acquisition of rival Wellington Underwriting. Corporate social responsibility was another focus, as the firm hired its first pro bono manager Florence Brocklesby for its London office from Freshfields.
