The law firm of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, announced that Robert W. Dickerson Jr. and Lawrence R. LaPorte have joined the firm in its Los Angeles office. Yasser M. El-Gamal has also joined the firm in Orange County, according to a press release.


All three will be part of the firm’s intellectual property practice. They come to the firm from Dickstein Shapiro LLP.

This is a definite coup for Manatt.”
