Continuing its mission to build up its month-old San Francisco office, Chicago’s Altheimer & Gray has hired a pair of attorneys from LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae. Graham Taylor, an international transactional and tax partner, and associate Thomas Bellig began practicing at Altheimer’s One Bush St. office Monday. The two laterals bring the office’s attorney count to five, with seven more attorneys expected to officially sign on in the coming weeks. Taylor represents boutique investment banks, foreign companies and high-net-worth individuals in cross-border transactions. His move comes after a three-year stint at LeBoeuf’s San Francisco office. “LeBoeuf, Lamb is a great law firm and its strengths are energy and insurance,” said Taylor. “My practice, although a good fit in many ways, was not centered on the two core practice areas that LeBoeuf is emphasizing for its future growth.” Taylor said his book of business totaled between $3.5 million and $4 million. He said that his clients came with him to LeBoeuf and he hoped they’d continue with him at Altheimer. Prior to practicing at LeBoeuf, Taylor was a partner at what was then Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro. “Altheimer has a great platform to grow from and on,” said Taylor. “The challenge of shaping and developing a brand new office based on the enormous number of contacts I’ve got in the Bay Area community is something which has given me enormous energy and excitement.” Altheimer & Gray, which had gross revenues of $117 million and average profits per partner of $580,000 in 2001, has more than 360 lawyers in 13 offices worldwide. The firm has an extensive presence in Eastern Europe with offices in locales such as Warsaw and Bucharest. The San Francisco office is the 87-year-old firm’s first expansion within the United States. “The firm’s commitment to attracting attorneys in San Francisco whose practice areas augment our core practices reflect the strength of our practices and the optimism throughout the firm about our growth in the U.S., the Pacific Rim and Europe,” said Altheimer Managing Partner Jeffrey Smith in a statement. According to an Altheimer spokesman, the firm has commitments for an additional seven attorneys to join the San Francisco office by January.
