Five securities litigation lawyers started working at Schulte Roth in Washington today after leaving Mayer Brown. The team is led by Richard Morvillo, who had been the chair of Mayer Brown’s securities enforcement practice group. Peter White and Pat Conti are also joining as partners, while Jeffrey Robertson and William Mann join as of counsel.
Washington DC is Schulte Roth’s first domestic expansion (the firm also opened an office in London in 2002). It was founded in New York in 1969 and there are over 450 attorneys working out of the three offices.
