Pillsbury Winthrop is continuing its management shake-up with new leaders for its San Francisco and Northern Virginia offices.
The firm completed a wide-ranging election of its managing board in November last year that saw Mary Cranston and Marina Park retain their positions as Pillsbury’s chair and managing partner respectively.
This month’s appointment of the San Francisco and Northern Virginia managing partners is a follow on from the November ballot.
Employment and labour partner Thomas Flaherty has taken over the reins of the Northern Virginian branch from Bill Atkins who was appointed to the firm’s managing board in November.
Flaherty has been with Pillsbury Winthrop since May 2002 after joining from Hunton & Williams.
Litigation partner Patrick Marshall is now heading up the firm’s San Francisco office which he took over from Andrea Wirum who was also elected to Pillsbury’s managing board last year.
Elsewhere on the West Coast the firm relocated its Silicon Valley to a new 84,000 sq ft space in December. The branch, which now houses 78 lawyers, first opened in 1991 with just three attorneys.
