Nassau will bring own style to Dechert
On the surface, it might look like more of the same with Henry Nassau succeeding Dan O'Donnell as CEO of Dechert next summer.
Nassau is head of the firm's powerful corporate securities practice, just as O'Donnell was before becoming CEO in 2011, just like Bart Winokur was before he become CEO in 1996. And it was Winokur and O'Donnell who recruited Nassau to join the firm in 1987 from Dilworth Paxson. There is clearly a close personal and professional bond between the trio.
