Withers has increased its US practice by nearly a third in the last five weeks - taking on a new team in Greenwich, Connecticut before the latest move which adds another three California bases.

Withers has picked up lawyers from the merger of McKenna Long & Aldridge www.BillionPhotos.com

Eight partners, 16 other professionnals and nine non-fee earners are joining from McKenna Long & Aldridge (itself preparing to merge into Dentons). Two other lawyers are joining from other firms - partner Michael Brophy from Russ August & Kabat and counsel Christine Steiner from Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton.


The new arrivals will be based in three new offices in Los Angeles, San Diego and Rancho Santa Fe, where they will provide advice on trusts and estate planning and litigation, business succession, philanthropy, art and probate.  The firm has some 1,000 people, including 150 partners.
