We mentioned that Latham snagged Alex Temel, a prominent partner from Proskauer, to help start up LW’s Boston office. Now we’re hearing additional reports about attorneys who will be joining Latham in Boston, as well as the location of the office….
So here’s what we’ve been hearing:
- The office will be located in the Back Bay neighborhood (quite tony — very nice, Latham).
- Latham has been looking at / talking to several partners from WilmerHale — and some may have already committed to join LW. The names being bandied about include John Chory, Peter Handrinos, Susan Mazur, and Philip Rossetti.
- Latham has also recruited at least one attorney away from Bingham McCutchen.
Please note that these reports have not been confirmed by Latham (which did not respond to our prior request for comment about the Boston office). So if you see anything erroneous, please let us know, by email or by text (646-820-8477).
