Thelen's 20-attorney China practice has joined Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. The team is led by partners Thomas Shoesmith, head of Thelen's Shanghai office; Mary Utterback; Joseph Tiano Jr.; and Louis Bevilacqua. The team includes three of counsel and 13 associates working out of offices in Shanghai, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. The loss of the practice comes amid widespread rumors that Thelen's merger talks with Nixon Peabody have been called off.
