After the Heller Ehrman implosion, keeping track of where the firm's former partners wound up has been like playing a game of Guess Who.
And now the big question has been answered.
The firm's former chairman Matthew Larrabee has joined Dechert's San Francisco office as a senior trial lawyer.
With a litigation career spanning more than 25 years, Larrabee, 53, has served as lead counsel for a number of companies and financial institutions in the financial services, software, pharmaceutical, and health care sectors. His practice has included consumer class actions, private antitrust litigation, False Claims Act disputes, and other complex commercial litigation.
In a statement, Dechert chairman Barton Winokur said, “Matt’s experience is unusually diverse, with each of his practice areas intersecting with a number of Dechert’s core litigation practices: class action defense, antitrust, fraud claims, and complex commercial litigation. Perhaps most importantly, Matt will provide yet another highly experienced and sophisticated first chair litigator to Dechert’s already impressive group of trial lawyers. I think everyone would agree that Matt is one of the most respected trial attorneys in the nation and we welcome him to the firm.”
