About Us

Dechert is a global law firm.
Focused on sectors with the greatest complexities, legal intricacies and highest regulatory demands, we excel in delivering practical commercial judgment and deep legal expertise for high-stakes matters.

Our work is widely recognized. We have 32 standout practices noted by Chambers Global, including global-wide rankings for arbitration, corporate investigations, anti-corruption, investment funds and life sciences. A Dechert settlement won the Global Dispute of the Year Award from The American Lawyer.

In an increasingly challenging environment, clients look to us to serve them in ways that are faster, sharper and leaner without compromising excellence. We developed a first-of-its kind legal project management department, which uses technology, people and processes to drive efficiency and deliver value for our clients.

We are innovators. We’re recognized for creating solutions to the most complex legal issues. The Financial Times ranked us in the top 10 most innovative firms in both North America and Europe, one of just two firms named in both reports.

We give back. The American Lawyer consistently ranks us in the top law firm pro bono programs. We have more than 1,200 open pro bono matters at any given time. In 2016 we recorded 86,000 hours of pro bono work. 

We are relentless in serving our clients – delivering the best of the firm to them with entrepreneurial energy and seamless collaboration. The Legal 500 gave us the highest service delivery score among the top 20 global law firms.
