Law360 (February 4, 2019, 12:01 PM EST) -- Dechert LLP’s private equity practice is consistently on the cutting edge of the industry, guiding important deals for major names like Singaporean sovereign wealth fund GIC Private Ltd. and Sun Capital Partners to earn a place as one of Law360’s 2018 Practice Groups of the Year.

With 250 lawyers across 18 offices in the U.S., Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Dechert’s private equity team makes up around a quarter of the firm’s attorney headcount.
