IN-HOUSE LAWYER RETURNS TO PILLSBURY David Lamarre, a former corporate partner at Pillsbury Winthrop, has rejoined the firm after a two-year stint working in house. From 2000 until earlier this month, Lamarre served as general counsel of San Bruno-based IPWireless Inc., a manufacturer of high-speed wireless telecommunications equipment. During that time, he led the company’s negotiations of numerous transactions, including technology licensing, distribution and a $27 million financing deal. Lamarre said his return to a private firm stems from his desire to focus on corporate and securities matters, and to practice among lawyers. As a partner in Pillsbury’s corporate, securities and financial institutions group, Lamarre will concentrate on mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances and securities offerings. He originally joined Pillsbury in 1991 after graduating from Stanford Law School. “It’s deeply rewarding to have partners of David’s caliber return to the firm. He is an excellent attorney and a treasured colleague,” said Pillsbury Chairwoman Mary Cranston in a statement. According to Pillsbury, Lamarre is the 16th alumnus to return to the firm since the 2000 merger between Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro and Winthrop, Stimson, Putnam & Roberts. — Alexei Oreskovic COOLEY NAMES CHIEF OF BUSINESS PRACTICE Cooley Godward partner Samuel Livermore has been named partner in charge of the firm’s San Francisco business practice.

Before that, he was a partner at Thelen Reid & Priest, where he served as chairman of the corporate practice from 1989 until 1992. Cooley’s 110-lawyer San Francisco office has 54 attorneys in its business practice. — Brenda Sandburg
