"On the Move" round-up

Blogger has up and down for the past couple of days, thwarting our attempts to let you know that Garland Stillwell has joined Shaw Pittman's legal team from Linowes and Blocher. Believe it or not (and if you don't believe it, you're spending too much time sorting out your beliefs), we're typing this post up in MS Word right now and hoping we'll have a chance to post it later.

So, if you're reading this, then it's later.

Anyway, we're just going to summarize the Legal Times' "On the Move" column here, written by Bethany Broida for the January 17, 2005 issue:

  • Akin Gump has added six attorneys from Clifford Chance (so much for that one attorney gain): Michael O'Shea, Frank Cimino, John Caracappa, Jin-Suk Park, Paul Gennari, and Rashida Lockhart.

  • Bryan Cave has hired Thomas Zehnle away from the DOJ Tax Division's Criminal Enforcement Section for the Southern Region. We're pretty sure he’s not the guy who caught Richard Hatch.

  • Shaw Pittman lost Jason Zuckerman to Clifford & Garde. He does employment litigation, not that there’s an irony in an employment attorney quitting his job or anything.

  • Finnegan, Henderson [et al] has snagged Richard Rainey away from Fish & Neave, like that's a challenge.

  • Womble has added former Kaufman & Canoles associate to its Tysons Corner, VA office as senior associate. You know it may kill us if we don't make an Our Town reference here.
