Texas-headquartered Baker Botts has hired another four antitrust partners from dissolved firm Howrey for its Washington DC office.
The news comes after Baker Botts last week announced the arrival of 32 antitrust lawyers from Howrey, including the co-chair of Howrey’s antitrust practice group Sean Boland along with two former US assistant attorney generals, James Rill and William Reynolds (17 March 2011).
The new partners are Thomas Dillickrath, Erik Koons, Charles Loughlin and Charles Webb. They have been joined by a team of analysts, economists and support staff.
“The addition of this group of lawyers to our antitrust team demonstrates our commitment to maintaining its hard-earned reputation of delivering excellent legal counsel to clients,” said Baker Botts managing partner Walt Smith.
“We’ll consider other strategic moves to support this group, particularly with respect to growing the practice in Europe and Asia.”
Meanwhile, US firm Fulbright & Jaworski has hired London-based Howrey litigation partner John Evans, who was the last remaining partner in the City following a spate of departures since January.
“John’s a fitting addition to our growing UK and international disputes and investigations practice in London,” said the chair of Fulbright’s executive committee Steven Pfeiffer.
