Dechert has added a familiar face to its arsenal of finance partners in Alon Goldberger, who returned to the firm Jan. 13 after a five-year hiatus at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan.

Goldberger previously practiced with Dechert from 2012 to 2016 as an associate specializing in leveraged finance before joining the New York office of Stroock. It was an “easy decision” to return in 2022, he said, so he could get in on Dechert’s “groundbreaking” deal work and contribute his access to private equity sponsors and credit managers to draw on “the best of both worlds” of financing transactions.
