Dewey & LeBoeuf No Longer a Lobby Shop

Before filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday in New York, Dewey & LeBoeuf ended its lobbying contracts in Washington.

The New York Times reports that the former powerhouse has whittled its operations to a skeleton crew overseeing liquidation.

At its peak, the firm employed 1,400 lawyers. In 2009, it brought in $3.4 million in lobby fees. The total decreased last year to $2.4 million.

Its biggest client, Lloyds of London, worked almost exclusively with Dewey & LeBoeuf. The insurance company’s lobby tab with the firm totaled $1.2 million last year.

Here are the client contracts terminated this month:

Client Termination Date
Aegis Insurance Services 5/23/2012
AFLAC Inc 5/24/2012
ASML Netherlands B.V. 5/15/2012
Dutch Association of Insurers 5/24/2012
Fidelity National Financial Inc 5/24/2012
Hannover Re 5/24/2012
International Underwriting Association 5/24/2012
Lloyd’s of London 5/24/2012
National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts 5/24/2012
Semiconductor Industry Association 5/15/2012
Trans-Elect Development Company LLC 5/24/2012

None of the above clients has registered with a new firm in the past three months.
