Dechert hires high profile litigation lawyer in NY
Dechert is boosting its New York litigation practice with the hire of high profile trial lawyer David M. Bernick. Bernick was with Kirkland & Ellis for more than 30 years before becoming the Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Philip Morris International in 2010.
"David is simply one of the best lawyers out there," said Dechert chairman Andrew J. Levander. "He is one of a handful of elite lead trial lawyers operating on the national stage. David strengthens what is already a phenomenal group of top flight trial lawyers at Dechert. We are very fortunate to be able to welcome him to Dechert."
