Major Life Sciences Team from Dechert Goes to McDermott


A Frankfurt team led by Dr. Rüdiger Herrmann will move from Dechert to McDermott Will & Emery in the middle of the month. Herrmann is joined by partner Jochen Eimerand counsel Alicia Hong and Dr. Monika Richter. They will advise on issues primarily in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors and will strengthen McDermott’s transactional practice.


McDermott is thus expanding the smallest of its three German locations: while Düsseldorf has around 50 professionals and there are around 30 in Munich, Frankfurt has so far only had only 20 lawyers, with 11 employed in the Corporate & Transactional practice group.
