Shearman scores dual hire for West Coast push

Shearman & Sterling is forging ahead with its Californian recruitment drive after scooping its second lateral in less than a month.

IP litigation partner Brian Cannon leaves Fish & Neave for Shearman. He will rejoin former colleague Vicki Veenker who left Fish & Neave four years ago to establish Shearman’s IP group at Menlo Park.

The firm also recently welcomed Stephen Hibbard, former chair of the securities and corporate governance litigation group at Bingham McCutchen into its San Francisco office.
