Jeff Haidet, the former chairman of Dentons US, has recently joined Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner as a partner, marking another leadership change at the renowned global law firm. Haidet will be based in Bryan Cave’s Atlanta office, where he will contribute his expertise to the firm’s corporate and finance transactions department, as stated on the firm’s official website.

While Dentons declined to comment on Haidet’s departure, a spokesperson from Bryan Cave confirmed the news but refrained from providing further details. This move comes as Dentons, operating under a Swiss verein business structure, witnessed a series of transformations within its U.S.-based leadership over the past few years.

With an impressive presence of more than 12,000 lawyers and 20,000 professionals spread across 80 countries, Dentons maintains its position as a leading global law firm. The Swiss verein structure allows its international branches to function as largely independent legal entities while operating under a shared brand.


In 2021, Dentons introduced Keith Moskowitz, an insurance partner based in Chicago, as the chair of its U.S. board of directors, a newly established role distinct from Haidet’s former position. Subsequently, in January 2022, Dentons appointed Sonia Martin as the CEO of Dentons US, succeeding Mike McNamara, who stepped down from the role.
