CLIFFORD ASSOCIATES JOIN JUMP TO ORRICK The bulk of associates and staff in Clifford Chance’s San Francisco and Los Angeles offices are joining the eight partners who defected to Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe last month. Orrick announced Monday that it has hired 16 associates and 18 paralegals, secretaries and other staff members from Clifford Chance. About a dozen associates and staff remain at Clifford Chance’s San Francisco office. A spokesman for the firm said it is uncertain how many of them will continue working at Clifford Chance once the office shuts down. London’s Clifford Chance announced last month it would close its San Francisco and Los Angeles outposts after eight of the 11 partners in these offices joined Orrick. A few days later, the two partners in its San Diego office announced they were also leaving, leading Clifford Chance to close that office as well. The firm retains a six-attorney office in Palo Alto. — Brenda Sandburg LITTLER TAKES MORGAN EMPLOYMENT PARTNER PHILADELPHIA — Littler Mendelson, the 400-lawyer labor-employment boutique, plans to expand its Philadelphia office by at least 10 lawyers, and their recent addition of James Boudreau is part of that growth. Boudreau began his new job late last month, leaving Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where he had practiced for nine years. Boudreau’s practice has focused on trade secrets law and class actions — two areas of labor and employment law where Littler wants to expand nationally. “I was at the point in my career professionally when I wanted to make a move,” Boudreau said. Littler is the largest labor and employment law firm in the country. The firm represents management only. It opened a Philadelphia office in March 2001, and Boudreau’s recent arrival brought the number of lawyers there to 15, said Tom Bender, managing partner of the office. Considering Boudreau’s skill set and the areas Littler was looking to further develop, the firm and the lawyer were a match, Bender said. “We’re delighted to have him,” he said. Besides trade secrets law and class actions, the firm is also looking to expand its practice in the area of employee benefits, Bender said. The firm, which opened a Boston office earlier this year, is also planning to add attorneys to its offices in New York, Chicago, Houston and Dallas. “We want to increase the presence of the firm on the East Coast,” said Bender, acknowledging that the firm has enjoyed greater name recognition on the West Coast. — The Legal Intelligencer
