12 Dewey & LeBoeuf partners defect to Willkie Farr

The New York-based firm has now lost 31 of its 300 partners since the beginning of the year

Hopefully the onset of spring will also mean a rebirth of sorts for Dewey & LeBoeuf’s partner ranks and financial health. The global law firm last week lost a dozen partners from its insurance transactional team to Willkie Farr & Gallagher.

Team leaders Alexander Dye, Michael Groll, Robert Rachofsky and John Schwolsky will all be changing addresses. Scott Avitabile, Donald Henderson Jr., Arthur Lynch, Vladimir Nicenko and Allison Tam also will join Willkie’s New York office, while Joseph Ferraro and Nicholas Bugler will transition to its London office and Christopher Petito will join the Washington, D.C. office.
