Douglas GetterDechert LLP

Dechert LLP‘s growing London team draws praise from a host of regulated corporates, banks, and investment firms its capabilities in high-value transactions. Practice co-chair Christopher Field‘s ‘excellent intellect’ makes him a key contact for some of the firm’s most significant financial services clients, who turn to him for his far-reaching expertise in multi-billion dollar, cross-border M&A. Douglas Getter‘s focus on international transactions sees him handling a significant volume of big-ticket mandates, most recently for clients in the tech, banking, and manufacturing sectors. Sean Geraghty is chiefly recognised for his TMT credentials, whereas Ross Montgomery – who was promoted to partner in January 2022 – has played critical roles in strategic telecoms divestitures and infrastructure investment transactions. Notable recent additions include PE transactional specialists Mark Thompson and Sam Whittaker, who joined the team from Kirkland & Ellis International LLP – arriving in July 2021 and August 2021, respectively.
