Alistair Maughan is one baaaad MoFo!

Shut your mouth... We're just going to do the one joke about Morrison & Foerster's nickname, and that was it. Weak, but it did involve a guy named Alistair. Anyway, the aforementioned Maughan is looking to head to MoFo from Shaw Pittman, along with David Skinner, Andrew Smith and a myriad of associates.

If talks pan out, incidentally, Tim Wright would be the only partner left in Shaw Pittman's London office. Maybe they'll promote a few grunts to keep him company.
