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

Posted by Matt Straquadine

Dewey & LeBoeuf’s Silicon Valley team has made two more big hires. The firm has added partners Jane Ross and John Brockland, both formerly of Cooley Godward Kronish. They are reuniting with former Cooley colleagues Keith Flaum, Richard Climan, and Eric Reifshnieder, who all left Cooley for Dewey in early July. That earlier exodus was compared to an earthquake rocking Silicon Valley's legal world by The Recorder, a sibling publication.

Mark Tidwell, formerly of Jackson Walker, has joined Haynes and Boone's Houston office as a partner. Tidwell will be doing intellectual property work.

Jones Day has hired Craig Waldman and Michael Knight away from Cooley Godward Kronish’s antitrust practice, where Waldman chaired the practice group. He’ll be working from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, while Knight will be based in Washington, D.C. 

King & Spalding has announced the addition of Laura Bushnell to its Silicon Valley office. Bushnell, formerly of Latham & Watkins, joins King as a partner in the corporate practice group.

After spending two years as general counsel to Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, David Cabrales has returned to Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell as a partner in the Dallas office. He’ll be doing both litigation and regulatory work.

Mayer Brown, which has lately been working hard to build its infrastructure practice, has added George Miller to the firm's global projects and infrastructure groups. Miller, who was previously at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, joins as a partner in the New York office.

Patton Boggs has hired Jeffrey Cohen for its Denver office. Cohen, a municipal finance attorney and litigator, founded a small Denver firm in 2002. Two associates from that firm joined along with Cohen, who comes on as a partner.

A former Delaware vice chancellor will oversee the new office that Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison has planned for Wilmington: Stephen Lamb, who joins as a partner in the corporate and litigation departments.

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom has announced the addition of Jennifer Bragg as a partner in the D.C. office. Bragg joins the firm's health care and life sciences practice.

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