Hunton & Williams is opening a San Francisco office with a trio of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld labor attorneys — part of an eight-lawyer group that’s also expanding Hunton’s offices in Los Angeles, Dallas and Houston.

Akin Gump is losing two of its five San Francisco partners — Brett Burns and Fraser McAlpine — and associate Anna Suh in the move. Akin partners Roland Juarez and Laura Franze, a co-chairwoman of the labor and employment group and a member of the firm’s management committee, will both join Hunton in Los Angeles, with Franze spending part of her time in Houston, and Juarez commuting between L.A. and Dallas. Rounding out the group, three Akin associates are joining Hunton’s Dallas office.
