For that, Wong would be the good cop, giving opening statements, to Davis' bad cop, crossing the plaintiff.
"We're drawing blood," Davis said on a break from trial Friday.
When the two teamed up to build a litigation department at Ropes, they were busy from the start, Davis said.
With Wong, he said it was "like drinking from a fire hose."
Wong jumped in: "I would say it's like drinking champagne from a fire hydrant."
Responded Davis, invoking a Saturday Night Live reference, "I would say it's like drinking Santana champagne from a hose, not a hydrant."
Wong let him have the last word, but, Davis said later, "occasionally we have to go to the gym to solve it with boxing gloves."
They joined the San Francisco office of Boston-based Ropes & Gray at the end of 2008, seizing on the chance to build a practice together.
Wong left the U.S. Attorney's Office after trying several high-profile fraud and corruption cases and serving as chief of the white-collar section.
Davis, who claims a 19-1-1 record in trials, arbitrations and injunction proceedings in a four-year period, joined Ropes after eight years with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in Los Angeles.
