ORRICK PARTNER LEAVES FOR GIBSON, DUNN Fred Brown, a 26-year veteran of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, has moved to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Brown, a litigator who focuses on intellectual property and complex commercial cases, began practicing at Gibson’s San Francisco office Monday. He said the move was prompted by the opportunity to try something new. “I’ve been at Orrick for a long time,” Brown said. “I gave them a career’s worth and thought it would be fun and exciting to do something a little different at a different law firm.” A Duke University School of Law graduate, Brown headed up Orrick’s West Coast litigation practice for several years, until handing over the reins about a year ago. He recently represented Cadence Design Systems Inc. in a patent infringement and trade secrets case with nearly $1 billion in claims. Other clients include Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. and agricultural-chemical company Arvesta Corp. Brown said it was too early to tell which clients would follow him to Gibson. The move is the latest in a succession of high-profile additions to Gibson’s Bay Area litigation practice, including former Third District Court of Appeal Justice Daniel Kolkey, who joined the firm in November, and Fenwick & West’s former litigation head, Timothy Roake, who moved to Gibson a year ago. Brown’s move was one of two Orrick departures Monday. Lori Bowman, the head of Orrick’s Los Angeles office labor and employment group, joined Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart. — Alexei Oreskovic BINGHAM NABS 2 TOP IN-HOUSE LAWYERS Bingham McCutchen has lured the top in-house lawyers at Charles Schwab & Co. and UBS Financial Services Inc. in a bid to bolster its broker-dealer litigation practice. The firm announced Monday that W. Hardy Callcott, the former senior vice president and general counsel of Charles Schwab, joined Bingham’s San Francisco office Dec. 8, while UBS Executive Vice President and General Counsel Herbert Janick III will begin practicing out of Bingham East Coast offices May 1. The firm has recently made several plays to expand the broker-dealer practice’s footprint beyond its East Coast origins. In July, Bingham lured a pair of partners from Los Angeles’ Keesal, Young & Logan. Bingham’s broker-dealer practice handles a variety of market and regulatory matters, and defends national and local clients in litigation, arbitration and regulatory cases. Callcott’s move comes after a nine-year stint at Schwab. Prior to joining Schwab, the Stanford Law School graduate worked in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of the General Counsel. “The opportunity to help [Gerald Rath, the chairman of Bingham's broker/dealer litigation group] build a broker-dealer practice was very attractive to me,” Callcott said in a statement. Janick, a one-time assistant director of the SEC’s division of enforcement, has been with UBS (formerly PaineWebber) since 1993. He has served as the company’s general counsel since 1996. — Alexei Oreskovic
