Now that the troubled law firm Howrey has officially dissolved, its former lawyers are busy looking for new places to practice. Several of them landed at top firms over the past week.

Covington & Burling picked up four former Howrey antitrust and white-collar defense partners: John Nields, Alan Wiseman, Andrew Lazerow, and Jason Raofield all joined the firm Monday.

Dewey & LeBoeuf, which had already picked up several Howrey lawyers, welcomed three more to its antitrust group: M.J. Moltenbrey and Jacqueline Grise joined as partners, and Mark Schechter joined as of counsel.

Thirteen patent litigators from Howrey landed in Arnold & Porter’s Washington and Los Angeles offices. The firm’s Washington office welcomed partners Matthew Wolf and Edward Han, and counsel John Nilsson and Marc Cohn.

Paul Hastings, which has also picked up Howrey lawyers, brought on a non-Howrey partner this week. Eric Greenberg joined the firm’s M&A practice from Covington & Burling.

Scott Blake Harris, general counsel at the Department of Energy, had his last day at the department Friday. Monday, he became executive vice president for legal and external affairs at Neustar, Inc.

Finally, there are some new additions among lobbying groups.

Steptoe & Johnson found a new managing director for its government-affairs-and-public-policy group: Elizabeth Burks joined the firm after spending more than five years as chief of staff to Arkansas Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln.

Lobbying firm Capitol Counsel welcomed Dena Battle as a principal. She joined from the National Association of Manufacturers, where she specialized in tax issues.
