After 118 years, San Francisco law firm Heller Ehrman will dissolve in a partnership vote today. Long a pillar of the San Francisco legal community, Heller saw a growth in offices and revenue starting in the 1970s. But troubles began to set in for the firm in 2007, with declines in revenue and profits per partner -- and both 2007 and 2008 were marked by a steady stream of partner departures. It was not yet clear on Thursday where various practice groups and offices might end up.
