ORRICK EMPLOYMENT PARTNER LEAVES FIRM Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe employee compensation partner Paul Borden jumped to Morrison & Foerster last week, marking the second employment partner defection from Orrick in the past month. Borden, who joined Orrick in 1995 and became a partner there in 1998, said MoFo offered him an “opportunity to lead and build an employee benefits group at a nationally recognized firm with over 1,000 lawyers.” While Orrick has about 12 attorneys in its employee compensation and benefits practice, Borden said that until his arrival at MoFo April 28 the firm had no executive compensation partner with ERISA expertise. As a member of MoFo’s tax department, he will support the firm’s transactional practice areas, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity funds and debt financing transactions. “We want to expand our capabilities in the ERISA area,” said MoFo partner Rachel Krevans. “Paul’s practice is wholly focused on ERISA so he’s bringing a depth of experience in that as well as transactional work.” Last month Orrick lost veteran employment litigator Jeffrey Wohl to the San Francisco office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker. As a member of the employment law practice, which includes litigation, Wohl was in a different group than Borden. Orrick’s compensation and benefits group is on the corporate side of the firm. Borden said it is a coincidence that he is leaving Orrick so soon after Wohl’s departure. “I wondered if people would think that” there was some relationship between the two, Borden said. They are “completely independent and I think for different reasons.” Prior to joining Orrick, Borden was an associate at O’Melveny & Myers from 1988 to 1995. He received his law degree from Boalt Hall School of Law in 1983. – Brenda Sandburg ALAMEDA COUNTY OKS JUVENILE HALL SITE The Alameda County Board of Supervisors approved plans to build a new juvenile hall near the site of the current facility in San Leandro, officially abandoning a controversial plan to relocate the juvenile hall to Dublin. The current 299-bed juvenile hall is in disrepair and is located too close to the Hayward earthquake fault. County leaders initially leaned toward building on county-owned land in Dublin, which is also going to be the site of a future East County court complex. But many opponents of the 420-bed Dublin facility said the site was too far from the cities where families of most juvenile hall detainees live. Supervisor Scott Haggerty, who was a strong supporter of the Dublin site, switched his backing to the San Leandro site. According to Haggerty’s spokesman Chris Gray, new data showed the county did not need a hall as big as the 420-bed proposal, and the cost of building a smaller, 360-bed facility near the current San Leandro site made more sense. Haggerty’s switch helped swing political support to San Leandro, said Nina Ramsey, a probation department spokeswoman. The existing 50-year-old hall, which is prone to flooding, heat and air conditioning outages, will be demolished, Ramsey said. The supervisors are expected to begin choosing builders for the new juvenile hall in June. – Jahna Berry
