Ten out of 11 attorneys in Wolf Block’s Wilmington, Delaware office are in talks to jump ship to a local office of Drinker Biddle.
The group, including office managing partner Shawn Tucker, is made up of six partners and four associates. It includes the five attorneys who merged their practice, Oberly Jennings & Rhodunda, into Wolf Block in May 2008.
Wolf Block partner Barry M. Klayman, a founder of the firm’s Wilmington office, is not involved.
The move would increase Drinker Biddle’s Wilmington headcount to 15 attorneys.
Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP was founded in Philadelphia in 1849. The firm has more than 650 attorneys in 12 offices in the US. Its largest offices are in Philadelphia; Chicago; Florham Park, New Jersey; and Washington, DC.
