U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken of the Southern District of New York has granted a request by Jordanian detainee Karam Al Sadeq for documents the firm’s policy committee allegedly has in connection with an investigation that Dechert partner Neil Gerrard led between 2014 and 2016, allegedly with the aid of two additional partners. All of the Dechert partners conducting the investigation were based in London.
