Sullivan & Cromwell partner dodges mandatory retirement by joining Dewey

February 2, 2011 Sullivan & Cromwell partner James Carter has moved to Dewey & LeBoeuf, one of the few large law firms without a mandatory retirement policy. Carter faced the prospect of being forced to resign when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 67, but the international arbitration and dispute resolution expert was not ready to give up his lawyering.

Carter said: "I like to think my experience and expertise provides an advantage to Dewey.”
