Nixon Peabody has grabbed a whopping 25 lawyers from the French wing of Taylor Wessing a little over a month after a New York judge rejected Taylor's argument that Nixon was illegally stealing its lawyers. The move is part of the firm's strategic plan, crafted over 18 months ago, that calls for 25 percent of the firm's lawyers to work overseas by 2013, says Richard Langan Jr., Nixon's managing partner. Currently, about 5 percent of the firm's lawyers work abroad, including the 25 new attorneys in France.
