Dechert has built a global platform across 26 locations with a singular focus – delivering the highest-quality advice that is actionable, commercial and delivered efficiently.

Dechert CEO Henry N. Nassau speaks

Our clients operate in increasingly challenging times. Geopolitical uncertainty, the sheer complexity of modern markets and an ever-changing regulatory environment contribute to a proliferation of commercial and regulatory risks. To navigate these challenges, we deliver sophisticated legal advice, grounded in broad market knowledge, in an agile and intuitive way.

We have some of the world’s leading lawyers advising on both domestic and cross-border matters. The firm is frequently retained to work on the most challenging transactions and disputes, and prides itself on its ability to deliver premium legal services and sound business judgment to its clients.

Dechert lawyers bring to their assignments a focus on quality, responsiveness and value for money. We are driven by one key principle: exceptional client service.

Our clients include corporations, financial institutions, sovereign states, quasi-sovereign entities and private and high-net-worth individuals all over the world. Dechert undertakes work for 40 of the “Fortune 100” companies, and represents more than 200 private equity and investment firms in some capacity. We also advise 24 of the top 25 global asset management firms, and 41 of the top 50 global private debt firms (as identified by PDI).

Dechert has a longstanding tradition of providing pro bono legal services to individuals and organizations who cannot otherwise afford legal counsel. Lawyers in all our offices and in all our practice groups make a difference every day by contributing their talents to providing pro bono legal services. The firm recently held its annual Pro Bono Recognition and Awards ceremony, where three individuals and two teams were honored with the 2020 Samuel E. Klein Pro Bono Award.
