What makes us different?

Pro Bono

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.

Dechert is a signatory to the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge® and we are committed to spending three percent of our total billable time annually on pro bono work. In addition, we are a signatory to the United Kingdom’s Joint Protocol for Pro Bono Legal Work. As a result of this dedication, Dechert lawyers commit thousands of hours annually to pro bono service.

We approach pro bono efforts with the same energy, enthusiasm and resources as work for commercial clients, and associates receive billable hour credit for their pro bono work. We require all lawyers to perform at least 25 hours of pro bono work per year to ensure universal participation in our pro bono program.

A Diverse Pro Bono Practice

Our firm has a dedicated partner focused full time on managing the firm’s pro bono program. She works with a pro bono committee consisting of representatives from every Dechert office. Our lawyers handle hundreds of pro bono matters covering issues such as civil rights, international human rights, child advocacy, special education, access to public benefits, asylum, landlord-tenant matters and the representation of numerous nonprofit organizations. We strive to find projects that make a difference and that match the personal interests of our lawyers.

Diversity & Inclusion

Championing diversity is part of Dechert’s DNA — a culture where respecting and valuing everyone’s voice and creating a shared enjoyment in all we do empowers people from different backgrounds, experiences and points of view to be fully themselves and bring their very best.

The following are just some of the key measures that Dechert has undertaken to improve diversity and inclusion at the firm.

Affinity Groups To effect change, affinity groups identify and address diversity and inclusion-related issues, and create new and recurring programming focused on the attainment of professional and business development skills. They offer enhanced mentoring opportunities, retreats and educational workshop for diverse attorneys. Our affinity groups include:

  • Asian Affinity Group
  • Black Lawyers Alliance
  • Dechert’s Family Network
  • Global Women’s Initiative
  • Latino Affinity Group
  • LGBTQ Affinity Group
  • Dechert Heroes (Veterans Affinity Group)

Aspiring Solicitors Dechert is an Affiliate Partner of Aspiring Solicitors (AS). 2018/2019 marks the third successful year of Dechert’s sponsorship of AS’s national Commercial Awareness Competition. Over 1,500 candidates entered the competition annually, with the winners offered a one week vacation scheme at Dechert.

Diversity Champions Recognizing the individuals who serve as role models for the inclusive, open culture we value, Dechert offers the Diversity Champions award. In 2020, our people submitted 100 nominations. Four Diversity Champions were recognized at our annual all-hands event, with honorees each awarded a bonus.

Diversity Dashboards To increase transparency, goal-setting and follow-through, Dechert designed and launched a diversity dashboard that helps firm leaders see where things are working effectively, and where more attention is needed.

Diversity Liaison Partners Selected to oversee the diversity and inclusion efforts of their respective practice groups, diversity liaison partners monitor assignments for equitable distribution of opportunities and workflow and ensure that diverse individuals are being mentored/sponsored.

Diversity Symposium Dechert holds a two-day Diversity Symposium for diverse associates, designed to help associates cultivate a wider professional and support network and to connect directly with firm leaders.

Global Women’s Initiative Members of Dechert’s Global Women’s Initiative (GWI) meet regularly with firm leadership to identify and implement initiatives that promote opportunities for women to advance and lead throughout the firm. Individual offices provide additional formal and informal support for women lawyers.

GWI initiatives include formal and informal mentoring, development training, meetings and events for summer associates, internal and external networking, special interest events, and leadership training. The GWI launched the Sponsorship and Sustained Support (SASS) program for senior women associates to help navigate the path to partnership.

Inclusive Leadership At the 2018 Partner Retreat firm leaders dedicated several hours to an intense, interactive session on inclusive leadership. Topics included affinity bias, attribution bias, covering, in and out groups, priming and unconscious bias. This program continued throughout 2018 and 2019, with regular partner meetings devoted to further building inclusive leadership skills. In 2020 this program is being expanded to everyone.

InterLaw Diversity Forum Dechert is an active sponsor of the InterLaw Diversity Forum, which has a proven track record of driving change and equality in the legal sector through networking, research, collaboration, and sharing best practices.

The Law Collective Dechert partnered with The Law Collective, an initiative for young black lawyers in the UK, both already in the profession and those seeking to secure a training contract.

Global Reach

Dechert is one of the world’s leading global law firms advising in a select number of key practice areas. Unlike other law firms, our practice groups are not organized geographically, but focus instead on those business sectors with the greatest complexities and highest regulatory demands. The structure, which sees lawyers from multiple offices in multiple countries coming together to work on individual matters, provides the most effective means of solving our clients’ most complex cross-border mandates.

The international nature of Dechert’s structure and mindset has far-reaching consequences. Our lawyers now speak more than 40 languages; many are qualified to practice in several jurisdictions. Our financial services group was the first funds team to span the key European funds domiciles of the UK, Luxembourg, Ireland, France and Germany. In the private equity space, half of all transactions handled during the past year contained a significant cross-border element; some two-thirds of those involved three or even more jurisdictions.

It is in masterminding complex, cross-border international engagements that Dechert lawyers achieve their most ground-breaking work.
