musical chairs above the law legal blog above the law legal tabloid above the law legal gossip site.GIFOn the Way Out:
* Myron Olesnyckyj, general counsel of Monster Worldwide (parent of Monster.com), has been suspended “effectively immediately, pending the results of the ongoing review of the Company’s historical stock option grant practices.”
Lateral Moves:
* M&A lawyer John Graham, to Clifford Chance (NY), from King & Spalding (NY), where he was co-head of the firm’s mergers and acquisitions practice.
(By the way, we love how the Brits refer to their top corporate law firms as making up the “Magic Circle.” Too bad we don’t have a term that cool to refer to, say, the top five or ten firms in the U.S.A. If you have any suggestions, feel free to email us.)
Government to Private Sector:
* Former Manhattan Surrogate Eve Preminger, to Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, as counsel.
(Surrogates are judges who oversee probate and the estates of the deceased. Eve Preminger did not give birth to Baby M.)
