Dewey repositions to make London key

Dewey & LeBoeuf chairman Steve Davis has vowed to make London a strategic priority as he moves to position the firm as a transatlantic, rather than a US, player. Davis, who took control of the firm following the October merger between US firms Dewey Ballantine and LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae, aims to increase the City lawyer headcount by 50 per cent in the next few years. "One office where we have the expectation of substantial headcount growth is London," he said. "The office is just shy of 200 fee-earners now and I think, if I had to pull a number out, I'd say that I could see that growing to 300 over the next several years.
