The Churn: Lateral Moves and Promotions in The Am Law 200

Posted by Matt Straquadine

Correction, 8/17/09 at 5 p.m.: A move by Marina Kozlova to Ogier mistakenly identified the firm as based in the British Virgin Islands.  Ogier is actually headquartered on Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands.  We regret the error.

A candidate for attorney general of California has joined the litigation practice of Goodwin Procter as counsel. For the past eight years Rockard Delgadillo has led a team of some 550 lawyers in the Los Angeles city attorney’s office, responsible for prosecuting misdemeanors and providing counsel to city agencies. Delgadillo ran for AG of the Golden State four years ago and lost, but he’s filed papers to begin fund-raising for another run next year.

The D.C. office of Covington & Burling has picked up two trial lawyers. Robert Brock is joining as partner and will chair the product liability and mass tort group. F. Chadwick Morriss joins the same practice group as of counsel.

K&L Gates continues to expand in Southeast Asia, announcing the addition of Raja Bose as a partner in the Singapore office. Bose, who was formerly with Watson, Farley & Williams, will be doing commercial arbitration and international litigation. The firm also added partner Stephen Crimmins to its securities enforcement practice. Crimmins, formerly with Mayer Brown, will be based in K&L Gates's D.C. office.

The offshore firm Ogier has hired Marina Kozlova for its Russia and CIS markets practice in its offices in the British Virgin Islands. According to the firm, Kozlova is the only native Russian lawyer admitted to practice in the British territory. She joins Ogier as partner and comes from competitor offshore firm Harney Westwood & Riegels.

The Churn is compiled from law firm news releases and announcements. Moves based on our own reporting will note this.
