Dewey & LeBoeuf overhauls management team amid more defections

The firm has lost more than 30 partners this year, including 12 from its insurance group

Desperate times have led to desperate measures at beleaguered Dewey & LeBoeuf. The New York-based law firm is making major management changes following several months of reported financial trouble and partner defections.

As part of the overhaul, chairman Steven Davis will relocate to London and share power with Jeffrey Kessler, head of litigation; Richard Shutran, head of the firm’s corporate department; Charles Landgraf, head of the Washington D.C. office; and Martin Bienenstock, chair of the business solutions and governance department.
