Dewey & LeBoeuf Russia Office Said to Seek New Law Firm

Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP’s struggle to survive a defection crisis that has seen it lose 20 percent of its partners is intensifying as its 42-lawyer Moscow outpost seeks to decamp to another U.S. law firm, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

More than 60 partners have departed New York-based Dewey over the past several months during what the firm has called a restructuring process. The largest contingent to leave was a group of 12 insurance and regulatory lawyers who went to Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP last month.
