LONDON HIRE Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering has added to its London office. Telecom and corporate partner Stephanie Liston, 45, joins from McDermott, Will & Emery. She will be joined by a telecom counsel and associate, giving Wilmer 39 London lawyers. — Richard Barbieri PATENTED MOVE Morrison & Foerster has hired patent prosecution partner Gerald Swiss from the Redwood Shores, Calif., office of Alexandria, Va.’s Burns, Doane, Swecker & Mathis. Swiss, who specializes in pharmaceutical and chemical patents, joined MoFo’s Palo Alto, Calif., office last week. Swiss, 49, says MoFo’s state-of-the-art biotech practice meshes with the future direction of biotechnology. MoFo has 80 attorneys and 10 patent agents in its patent group. Swiss is a 14-year veteran of Burns, Doane, an IP firm with approximately 100 attorneys firmwide, including about 16 in its Redwood Shores office. — Brenda Sandburg HOME SALE Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, the rare Manhattan law firm that owns rather than leases its offices, has put its Financial District building on the market, where it may be scooped up by developers for a residential conversion. The announcement last week by real estate broker Jones Lang LaSalle also stated that 514-lawyer Cadwalader would move out of 100 Maiden Lane by the end of 2004. But Cadwalader chairman Robert Link says the firm has not made any commitments yet. Though Cadwalader is rapidly outgrowing the 325,000-square-foot space it has occupied since 1984, one option Link says the firm would consider is retaining the space and opening satellite offices in Westchester County, New Jersey, or Stamford, Conn. — Anthony Lin COOLEY TO MOFO Cooley Godward finance partner William Veatch has jumped to Morrison & Foerster‘s San Francisco office. A nine-year veteran of Cooley, Veatch, 41, says MoFo’s New York and international offices provide an opportunity to expand his practice. At least seven Cooley partners have jumped to other firms since the start of the year. In addition to being attracted to MoFo’s New York presence, Veatch says he was finding himself conflicted out of a number of banking relationships at Cooley. — Brenda Sandburg
