Dechert LLPDechert LLP chairman and CEO Barton Winokur announced that he has taken a $1 million pay cut.

Winokur revealed the self-imposed pay cut, in fact a reduction in his draw from firm profits, at a meeting of law firm execs in late April.

Other Dechert executives have taken similar pay cuts, according to Winokur.

UPDATE

A firm spokesperson confirms that Dechert’s 36 highest-paid partners have agreed to take a undisclosed percentage cut in their annual draw. If the firm does well, the partners may be able to make up the difference in bonuses.



The firm denies that Winokur’s reduction is $1 million.
