Four partners at Vinson & Elkins have withdrawn from the partnership to join Latham & Watkins in its move to bulk up a new Houston office, sources say. The lateral hires of William Finnegan IV, Brett Braden, Charles Carpenter and Charles Timothy Fenn follow the opening of Latham's Houston office last month with hires from Baker Botts and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. Latham has said it hopes to use the Houston office to push further into the energy sector.
