The second half of today’s legal professional moves.
* Robin Weisman, to NASDAQ, where she will serve as director of government relations,from Akin Gump, where she was counsel.
* Kirkland & Ellis. A boatload of new partners — fifteen of them, in fact.
Here they are, per the New York Law Journal (middle initials omitted, in a shameless bid for Google traffic from their names):
Colin Adams, restructuring; John Armbruster, corporate; William Brashares, corporate; Iskender Catto, energy; Mukang Cho, real estate; Eric Dittmann, intellectual property; Helena Huang, restructuring; Jordan Malz, intellectual property; Andres Mena, corporate; F. Christopher Mizzo, intellectual property; Young Park, intellectual property; William Sorabella, corporate; Kester Spindler, corporate; Michael Stadnick, intellectual property; Christopher Torrente, corporate.
Are these 15 only New York-based lawyers ? And are they equity or non-equity partners? We know that the brilliant litigatrix Susan Engel (nee Susan Kearns) just made non-equity partner in K&E’s Washington office — en route, surely, to equity partnership if she wants it. But Susan’s name doesn’t appear on this list.)
* Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel: Land use and environmental litigation lawyer Jeffrey Bruan; litigatrix Jennifer Rochon; corporate lawyer Terrence Shen; Douglas Schneller, who specializes in “claims trading and distressed investing advice” (that sounds cool); and litigator Norman Simon.
