LONDON, November 9, 2009: Morgan Lewis today announced that Mark S. Dichter, one of the most successful partners in its Labour and Employment Practice, will relocate to London and begin splitting his time among the firm’s London and US offices. His move follows the announcement by the firm earlier this fall that it will focus its efforts in London on growing the firm’s corporate, employment, and energy practices.
“As many of our clients have expanded outside the United States, it became apparent that our clients and the firm would benefit from Mark's establishing a residence in London,” noted Firm Chair Francis M. Milone. “Mark's presence in London demonstrates the firm’s commitment to the continued growth and expansion of our practices in Europe.”
A past chair of the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section, Mr. Dichter has been named the “World's Leading Labour and Employment Lawyer” by Who's Who Legal for the past three years. He will continue as the chair of the firm’s Labour and Employment Practice, which has been a winner and perennial finalist in The American Lawyer’s biannual “Litigation Department of the Year—Labor and Employment” contest since 2004.
“While Mark has won many US and international awards, he is best known for his team spirit and selfless devotion to our clients,” added Charles G. Lubar, Managing Partner of the firm’s London office. “We are thrilled to welcome him to the UK.”
Mr. Dichter has worked from the firm’s Philadelphia and New York offices for many years, representing clients in employment litigation and counseling throughout the United States as well as internationally.
