Legendary Silicon Valley solo practitioner Allen Ruby is taking his high-powered litigation practice to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, according to the San Jose Mercury News, which first had news of the move.

Skadden confirmed the hire in a statement (pdf). Ruby, who spoke with The Am Law Daily by phone late Tuesday, says that he will become a Skadden partner on Jan. 1, 2011 and work out of the firm’s office in Palo Alto. Ruby also intends to hold on to his small office in San Jose as a “trial office,” he says.
