Clifford Chance announced Monday that it is closing its San Francisco and Los Angeles offices as eight of its 11 partners in these outposts jumped to Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. Orrick acquired the two partners in Clifford Chance’s L.A. office and six of the nine remaining partners in its S.F. office. The deal was finalized Friday afternoon, and the group started at Orrick Monday. The team joining Orrick includes Michael Torpey, who was co-head of Clifford Chance’s global securities litigation group, and James Burns Jr., managing partner of the firm’s West Coast practices. The S.F. group also includes fellow securities litigation partners Karen Johnson-McKewan, James Kramer, Robert Varian and L. Christopher Vejnoska. The two Los Angeles partners joining Orrick’s L.A. outpost are real estate attorney Jerry Walsh and securities litigator Daniel Tyukody Jr. Orrick Chairman Ralph Baxter Jr. said the deal has been in the works for the past couple of months.
