O'Melveny targets silver lining in telecoms cloud

Ex-Hunton & Williams partners to set up specialist regulatory group

O’Melveny & Myers is making the most of the battered telecoms sector by setting up a specialist regulatory group. James Young, the former general counsel at Bell Atlantic, now Verizon Communications, and of counsel at Hunton & Williams will be moving to O’Melveny as a partner.
Kimberley Newman is also joining from Hunton & Williams, where she was a partner specialising in regulation and anti-trust. Both will be joining O’Melveny’s Washington office.
