Debevoise in London – 30 Years of Landmarks

4 September 2019

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP first opened in London in 1989 with two partners and three associates. Thirty years later, the firm now has 120 lawyers and a leadership team of 38 partners and counsel in London.

To mark this 30th anniversary, Debevoise’s London team has published an exploration of the defining events and trends in the firm’s key practice areas and industries.

The period covers the end of the Cold War, a global financial crisis, a wave of regulatory change, seven different Prime Ministers, the advent of Brexit, and much more besides.

The new publication examines developments across a wide variety of legal disciplines and industry sectors, pinpointing landmark moments that have shaped the UK environment today.
