"Movers" round-up

Our "On the Move" round-up went so well, we're going to do it with George Szamuely's "Movers" column at the ol' National Law Journal.

  • Goodwin Procter picked up Anthony R.G. Nolan from Shearman & Sterling. The "R.G." stands for Really Good.

  • MoFo has added for U.S. Attorney Office for the Eastern District of New York deputy chief of business and securities fraud Ronald White to its New York white collar and securities lit group. His business cards were two pages long.

  • Reed Smith bolstered its New York products liability practice with aviation defense attorney Patricia Moores, who previously worked for Biedermann, Hoening, Massamillo & Ruff. We would totally work there just for the name.

  • Manatt, Phelps & Phillips has picked up a couple of attorneys from AmLaw 100 firms: Jay Rand, late of MoFo, and Bart Greenberg, formerly of Preston Gates & Ellis.

  • Nixon Peabody can now see the woods through Forrest David Milder, who leaves Brown Rudnick Berlack Israels to join Nixon's syndication team.

  • Proskauer Rose is another firm to benefit from Testa Hurwitz's dissolution. It adds seven attorneys from the late Boston firm. (Well, they're not quite dead yet, but they're not getting better.)
