REAL ESTATE MOVE Keith McGlamery came to town three years ago to be managing partner at the D.C. office of Jenkens & Gilchrist, hoping to grow his commercial real estate practice. But McGlamery, 56, says the firm’s decision to refocus on traditional Washington practices sent him searching for a new home. He found one in the D.C. office of Philadelphia-based Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll. McGlamery says his new perch will help him expand his practice in the District and in the mid-Atlantic region. — Marie Beaudette IP ADDITION In Atlanta, Jason Bernstein has taken his intellectual property practice to Powell, Goldstein, Frazer & Murphy. Bernstein brings a “thriving and well-respected” business to Powell, Goldstein’s Atlanta patent practice, says firm leader Armin Brecher. Bernstein, 44, started his firm in 1991 and brings with him such clients as Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Kimberly-Clark. — M.B. LABOR CHANGE Nixon Peabody is beefing up its San Francisco employment practice with the addition of a pair of longtime Littler Mendelson partners. Jeffrey Tanenbaum, the co-chair of Littler’s occupational safety and health practice, and Robert Carrol began practicing out of Nixon’s 80-lawyer San Francisco office last week. The two attorneys will co-chair Nixon Peabody’s West Coast employment law practice. Tanenbaum will also chair Nixon Peabody’s national OSHA practice. — Alexei Oreskovic DALLAS LAYOFFS As part of a massive reorganization of its internal structure, Dallas’ Thompson & Knight laid off 50 staffers in administrative, secretarial, and file clerk positions, mostly in Dallas and Austin, says Pete Riley, the firm’s managing partner. “This was an internal reorganization to try to run the place the best way we can,” he says. “It’s not short-term financial reasons.” Texas Lawyer‘s recent report on firm finance shows that the firm’s gross revenue increased 17.3 percent between 2001 and 2002 — to $141.6 million — and that Thompson & Knight was one of Texas’ more profitable large firms. Laid-off employees were given separation pay based on seniority, out-placement counseling, and three months of medical insurance. — John Council
