Chairman of Dechert London Steps Down


With the departure of Chairman Camille Abousleiman, Dechert’s London management committee has shrunk again.

Abousleiman has stepped down from the committee to become the Lebanese minister of labor. Alongside his new role, he will remain counsel at Dechert.

Abousleiman is the second member of the committee to step down in recent months after fellow Dechert partner Miriam Gonzalez left the firm last fall.

Chairman since 2016, Abousleiman most recently served as the US firm’s global head of capital markets.

The London office will be continued to be overseen by remaining committee members Jason Butwick and financial services partner Gus Black.There are no immediate plans to replace Abousleiman on the management committee, said a representative for the firm. Dechert CEO Henry Nassau said, “We recognize that this is a unique opportunity for Camille to serve his country at the highest level and we are pleased that he will remain at Dechert as of counsel to continue to support clients, working closely with other Dechert attorneys.”
