Intellectual Property Lawyers Make Big Moves: Power Circuit
Plus firms bone up on insurance practices and a journalist joins McDermott Will & Emery
Mark Koehn joined the intellectual property litigation practice at Latham & Watkins, where he is counsel. He was previously at Paul Hastings.
Intellectual property firm Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione welcomed Carl Charneski, a former administrative law judge at the US International Trade Commission.
Firms have also been building up their insurance practices. Perkins Coie added Selena Linde and Michael Sharkey as partners in its insurance coverage litigation group. Both previously practiced at Dickstein Shapiro.
Manatt, Phelps & Phillips welcomed insurance recovery partners David Killalea and Stephen Raptis from Gilbert LLP.
Bruce Thompson Jr., formerly managing director and senior director of global government relations at Merrill Lynch, is now a vice president at lobbying firm Van Scoyoc Associates. He will focus on financial services and tax issues.
Finally—it’s not everyday that a veteran journalist joins a law firm, but that’s exactly what happened in McDermott Will & Emery’s government strategies group. Political reporter Jon Decker, most recently White House correspondent for Reuters Television, joined the firm as a senior professional advisor last week.Subscribe to Washingtonian
