Pillsbury Winthrop has widened its recruitment drive to the US East Coast after taking on the co-founding partner of West Coast rival Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosatis New York office. Babak Bo Yaghmaie is joining the firms corporate and securities group where he will specialise in high-tech, life science, investment bank and venture capital clients.
