NEW ENERGY Duane Morris has made two leadership changes. Sheila Slocum Hollis, managing partner of the D.C. office, has been named to the firm’s executive committee. Hollis, 54, opened the Philadelphia-based firm’s Washington office in 1997. Her government experience includes time at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Federal Power Commission. With her new position, Hollis steps aside as chair of Duane Morris’ energy, environment, and water and natural resources group. The new practice chief is D.C. partner Stephen Teichler, an energy lawyer and litigator. Teichler, 51, has been tapped as head of the firm’s energy and resources practice. Duane Morris has 500 lawyers over 19 domestic offices. — Richard Barbieri HELLER’S APPEAL Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe continues its push to build an appeals practice. The firm has brought on Warrington Parker, a litigator at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges in Los Angeles and former assistant U.S. attorney in the central district of California. Parker, who will practice in San Francisco, has briefed and argued 22 cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. The addition of Parker completes the initial team that will compose Heller Ehrman’s recently formalized appeals group. Last month, the firm announced that E. Joshua Rosenkranz, the founding CEO of New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice, had joined the group. — Alexei Oreskovic SMALL IS GOOD Pillsbury Winthrop has added Tom Thomas, a corporate and technology lawyer, to its Silicon Valley office in Palo Alto, Calif. Thomas, 43, joins the firm from Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly in Palo Alto. He will co-chair Pillsbury’s nanotechnology group with Ron Fleming, a New York partner. — R.B. LONDON MOVE Gavin Watson, formerly a senior associate with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, has joined the London office of King & Spalding. Watson will be a member of the global projects practice group, focusing on oil and gas development projects and liquefied natural gas-related work for energy companies. K&S opened its London office in January and now has eight permanent lawyers there and six who split time between London and other offices. — Julia D. Gray
