After last week’s decision to shutter the firm, more Howrey partners are making an early exit. Since the dissolution vote, Venable, Covington & Burling, and Arnold & Porter have all picked up partners.
The largest group went to Arnold & Porter who snagged a 13 lawyer IP litigation team, split between Washington, DC and LA. The team is made up of five partners and one of counsel, all of whom will join Arnold & Porter as of counsel, along with seven associates.
The partnership vote, which happened last week on the 9th, requires partners who were still at the firm as of that day to remain until the dissolution on the 15th. Any moves happening between the 9th and the 15th will not become official until Wednesday at the earliest.
