Dechert makes life sciences play with hire from Hogan Lovells
Dechert has hired M&A and private equity partner Robert Darwin from Hogan Lovells in London.
The hire is seen as a move on the Philadelphia-based firm’s part to strengthen its corporate life sciences group. Prior to making partner at Hogan Lovells in 2015, Darwin held solicitor positions at Slaughter and May, Faegre & Benson, and Withers.
A Hogan Lovells spokesperson wished Darwin luck in “the next phase of his career” and expressed gratitude for his contribution to the firm.
