The fourth and final lawyer who was managing Dewey & LeBoeuf has left the law firm.
Charles Landgraf joined Arnold & Porter on Wednesday, where he will be a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, the Hill reports. An insurance lobbyist, Landgraf told the publication that Arnold & Porter is “the perfect platform” for his practice.
Another Dewey partner leaving today is Christopher Clark, who led Dewey’s white-collar defense practice, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog reports. He is heading to Latham & Watkins.
Yesterday, Schulte Roth & Zabel announced it is acquiring a group of 11 equity and real estate lawyers from Dewey, including Joseph Smith, chair of Dewey's private equity practice. Only Smith and Marshall Brozost are joining Schulte Roth as partners.
