Dechert loses two life sciences teams in two days
McDermott Will & Emery has recruited a four-member life sciences team from Dechert for its Frankfurt office.
The team is led by partner Rüdiger Herrmann. Herrmann joined Dechert from WilmerHale in 2014; prior to that he spent close to a decade at Mayer Brown. Joining him are McDermott partner Jochen Eimer and counsels Monika Richter and Alicia Hong.
The Frankfurt team’s departure from Dechert comes just one day after another life sciences group left the firm’s London office for Goodwin Procter. That team is led by corporate partners Graeme Defries and Andrew Harrow. They are joined by New York life sciences partner Kristopher Brown and counsel Jonathan Schur.
