Dechert lures former Weil heavyweight back to practice
Dechert has lured back a former corporate finance heavyweight back into the game. Just shy of three years after leaving Weil Gotshal & Manges and law to found a corporate advisory boutique, Laurent Faugérolas has agreed to join Dechert as a partner.
Faugérolas only spent two years at Weil Gotshal before departing the firm. Prior to his time there, he practiced at Willkie Farr & Gallagher. Faugérolas is a corporate finance specialist who focuses on M&A transactions in the energy and life sciences industries.
An important factor in his decision to join Dechert, one among several firms he spoke with, was its US origin, which is important to his ability to serve his clients. Faugérolas will split his time between London and Paris.
