Dewey’s still losing partners with the third partner in recent days to depart for Mayer Brown. The troubled firm’s been beset by several issues and has restructured to resize itself. The WSJ Law Blog reports.

Dewey & LeBoeuf, the firm that’s been beset with departures since the start of the year, has lost another partner to Mayer Brown’s New York office.

Richard B. Spitzer, a corporate finance partner whose practice focused largely on the insurance industry, started at Mayer Brown on Wednesday, according to the firm. Spitzer (William & Mary, Georgetown Law) is the third Dewey partner in recent days to decamp to Mayer Brown.

Last week, the head of Dewey’s structured finance practice, Stephen Rooney, and the co-head of the global insurance practice, James Woods, both moved to Mayer Brown. Click here and here for LB posts on those moves.

A Dewey spokesman declined to comment. The firm has repeatedly said it expected several partners to leave in the wake of a broad firmwide restructuring that has included layoffs of lawyers and support staff and a readjustment of the firm’s compensation scheme.
