Fenwick & West has been hit with yet another departure in litigation, this time to Los Angeles firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges. Partner Claude Stern, an intellectual property specialist, has jumped shipped to Quinn Emanuel. His move follows the surprise defection earlier this year of Fenwicks former litigation group chairman Timothy Roake to Gibson Dunn & Crutcher.
