After nearly a decade at competitor firms, trial lawyer William “Bill” Oxley is returning to Orrick with fellow partner Meghan Kelly, building upon Orrick’s strategy to go to battle for its base of tech, energy and life sciences clients.

“Bill and Meghan are marquee, first-chair trial lawyers who have tried some of the biggest cases in the sectors that are vital to Orrick,” said Peter Bicks, co-head of the firm’s global litigation practice. “Bill is a nationally recognized trial lawyer, and Meghan adds to our great pipeline of first-chair women trial lawyers.”
