Dechert lands 29-lawyer litigation team from Quinn Emanuel

July 23, 2018 After two months of gradual departures, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan has lost a 29-strong product liability team to Dechert.

The group hire began at the end of May, when Quinn product liability co-chairs Mark Cheffo and Sheila Birnbaum joined Dechert, along with partner Douglas Fleming. Quinn counsels Hayden Coleman, Bert Wolff, and Douglas Dunham later joined as partners at the US firm.

Additionally nine counsel, six associates, five paralegals, and three project attorneys will be making the move between the firms. They will all be working under the leadership of Birnbaum and Cheffo in Dechert’s product liability group.
