Update, 10/20/10, 10:20 a.m. In the sixth graf, a correction has been made to the arriving partner's name.

WINFRIED SCHMITZ is now with Cozen O'Connor as a member in New York, where he will work on cross-border transactions, as well as strategic M&A, private equity, and venture capital matters. Schmitz was formerly with the Düsseldorf, Germany-based firm Buse Heberer Fromm.

Dykema welcomed RONALD GREENBERG into the firm's litigation department as of counsel. Based in Los Angeles, Greenberg specializes in business, commercial, wrongful termination, tort, insurance, and product liability litigation. He was most recently of counsel with Berkes Crane Robinson & Seal.

Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart has added a shareholder to its labor and employment practice. DAMON HART, who will be based in Boston, arrives from Holland & Knight. He focuses on such issues as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other antidiscrimination and employment statutes.

Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe has bolstered its securities litigation and regulatory enforcement practice with the addition of ROBERT COHEN as a partner in New York. Cohen was previously the senior deputy general counsel and head of litigation for Ernst & Young. His clients at Orrick will include accounting firms.

Patent litigator DAVID RADULESCU has joined Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan as a partner in New York. Radulescu, who holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, often works on multipatent, multijurisdiction disputes where technology is an issue. He was most recently a partner at Weil, Gotshal & Manges.

White & Case has added a partner in the firm's Silicon Valley office. Formerly the vice president and associate general counsel for Oracle Corporation, BRADY MICKELSEN will join the firm's M&A practice. In his previous position, he handled more than 60 acquisitions and strategic investments over the past five years--including Oracle's purchases of Sun Microsystems, Inc., and BEA Systems, Inc.
