When Steve Molo and Jeffrey Lamken left their big-firm homes of Shearman & Sterling and Baker Botts, respectively, in September 2009 to open their own litigation boutique, they were set on moving away from the billable hour in favor of alternative fee structures. The duo also hoped to build the New York/Washington, D.C.-based practice to include 40 to 50 lawyers over the next five years. Fifteen months since their launch, MoloLamken is making moves on the hiring front. The firm announced Wednesday that it has recruited litigator Thomas Wiegand of Winston & Strawn as a partner in New York.

Wiegand’s move is a professional reunion for the veteran litigator and Molo, a close friend. The two practiced together at Winston & Strawn for 15 years, teaming up to represent Sears Roebuck in several class actions in the 1990s. (Molo, who had joined Winston in 1986, eventually moved on to Shearman before founding his own firm.)
