In move that spells the end for Weil, Gotshal & Manges‘s decades-old estate planning practice, the chair of the firm’s trusts group, Carlyn McCaffrey, and six colleagues have decamped to McDermott Will & Emery, which announced the moves in a statement released Thursday.

It became very interested in big corporate work and less interested in individual client work.”
