The crisis at Thelen reached a new level Friday as it appears that even firm Chairman Stephen O'Neal is out looking for a job. O'Neal and 30 or so lawyers from the signature construction and mass torts practice are currently in talks with Washington, D.C.'s Howrey, with hopes of closing a deal soon, a person familiar with the situation said. "Most people are kinda pissed off that he's spending more time on his own situation than the firm's situation," said one Thelen partner who did not want to be named.
