american lawyer media news service San francisco-Two weeks after Chicago’s Altheimer & Gray abruptly announced plans to close shop, the firm’s San Francisco attorneys appear poised to regroup under the Seyfarth Shaw flag. On July 21, international tax partner Graham Taylor and two associates officially began working at Seyfarth’s downtown San Francisco office. It was unclear whether the remaining eight attorneys will join Seyfarth, also based in Chicago. The move provides Seyfarth’s San Francisco office with the corporate practice it has been looking for while potentially preserving Altheimer’s recently launched San Francisco group. “I think this is the beginning of what I expect to be a sizable corporate practice here in San Francisco and ultimately in California,” said William Dritsas, the managing partner of Seyfarth Shaw’s 50-attorney San Francisco office. “Graham has got the entrepreneurial spirit and drive to grow it; we’ve got the interest and the support for him to do it.” Dritsas would not say whether the firm had extended offers to the other Altheimer attorneys, but noted that Seyfarth had interviewed them and was “very favorably impressed with them as an entire group.”
