COUDERT’S NEW CHAIR Coudert Brothers has elected Los Angeles partner David Huebner chairman of the firm. Huebner, who has been managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office for the past several years, succeeds Steven Beharrell. Beharrell — a partner in New York — had held the post since October 2001. Huebner, 42, is an international arbitration specialist who has focused on pharmaceutical and intellectual property disputes. — Brenda Sandburg WILMER IN LONDON Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering has added a financial services regulatory lawyer to its London office. Eva Heffernan, 46, joins the firm from Merrill Lynch Europe, where she was director and senior counsel. Heffernan has more than 20 years of regulatory and litigation experience, including time at the Department of Justice and at the Securities and Exchange Commission. Further expanding the London financial services group, D.C. associate Elizabeth Derbes, 32, will soon move to the London office. — Richard Barbieri MILES MERGER In Baltimore, Miles & Stockbridge has announced an agreement to combine with Church Loker & Silver. Joining Miles & Stockbridge are 10 lawyers from Church Loker, a defense law firm specializing in complex litigation, including mass torts and insurance matters. — R.B. COURTING IRAQ In February, U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Orlofsky of New Jersey announced he was leaving the bench on Sept. 1 to rejoin Blank Rome in Cherry Hill, N.J. Orlofsky said at the time that he found the increasing volume of firearms and narcotics cases filling his court “tedious” and “unchallenging.” The same cannot be said of his next venture. Late last month, he told colleagues he was moving up his date of departure so that he can spend three months restoring civil and criminal courts in Iraq. Orlofsky, 58, is joining a 13-member U.S. Department of Justice delegation to the war-torn country, now under American military occupation that the populace hasn’t quite taken to. Orlofsky spent four years as a U.S. Army artillery officer. — Charles Toutant
