Troutman Sanders has hijacked the 91-lawyer New York office of Dallas-based Jenkens & Gilchrist. In one fell swoop, Troutman has gone from having no New York office to having the second-largest of any Atlanta-based firm. With the New York group, the firm now has about 600 lawyers. Noting that Troutman has wanted an office in that location for some time, managing partner Robert W. Webb Jr. said, "We made sure that when we opened in New York, we would do so with excellent lawyers, business and critical mass."
