Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe has recruited 27 partners from Heller Ehrman, which has declared its intention to dissolve. Orrick Chairman Ralph Baxter hailed the additions Thursday, pointing to the "critical mass" of antitrust lawyers joining the firm. Other firms, including Covington & Burling, Arnold & Porter and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, also have recently announced Heller hires in recent days.
