Five partners and up to 15 associates and counsel are leaving Willkie Farr & Gallagher effective Jan. 1 to take in-house jobs with one of the firm’s largest clients, Bloomberg L.P., the company announced Thursday. In the process, Bloomberg L.P. is getting a new chief legal officer: Willkie corporate partner Richard DeScherer, a longtime confidant of company founder Michael Bloomberg.

Other Willkie attorneys accompanying DeScherer to Bloomberg include corporate partners and information systems and technology co-chairs Dan Grossman and Carol Mascera, as well as corporate partners David Levine and Sarah Osborn. Willkie co-chairman Steven Gartner says that the specific number of associates and counsel joining Bloomberg will be decided over the next few weeks.
