Mayer Brown loses top US finance partner Marshall Stoddard to Dewey

July 7, 2009 Finance lawyer Marshall Stoddard, co-chair of Mayer Brown's global finance practice, will leave the firm to become the US head of bank and institutional finance at Dewey & LeBoeuf.

Stoddard's departure follows a high-profile management shakeup at Mayer Brown, which resulted in a departure of London-based vice chairman Paul Maher who joined Greenberg Traurig last month.

After James Holzhauer announced he would step down as chairman, Mayer Brown's partners had approved the creation of a new governance structure in April, replacing its 16-member policy and planning committee with a six-member management committee and 12-member partnership board. Herbert Krueger followed Holzhauer as chairman last month.
