Orrick welcomes eight CC West Coast partners

Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe last week confirmed that a team of eight Clifford Chance partners are joining the firm, as first revealed by The Lawyer (21 June). The haul of largely ex-Brobeck Phleger & Harrison partners, who moved to Clifford Chance two years ago, is made up of lawyers from the San Francisco and Los Angeles offices, which will now close, although Clifford Chance will retain its Palo Alto and San Diego branches.
