Nixon Peabody's head count will shoot up to about 825 after it scoops up as many as 100 former Thelen attorneys this month, the firm said. The firm has extended offers to about 50 partners from Thelen, the 400-lawyer San Francisco firm that voted to dissolve last week. Late last month, Nixon announced the hiring of 25 attorneys from the Paris office of Taylor Wessing, following a strategic plan to have 25 percent of the firm's attorneys working abroad by 2013.
