Morgan, Lewis & Bockius has tapped Uncle Sam for another good lawyer. William Kimball, who will join the firm’s San Francisco office Friday, becomes the fourth Enron prosecutor to turn to private practice with the Philadelphia firm. Kimball was recruited by Leslie Caldwell, the Enron Task Force leader, and John Hemann, another task force member and 10-year assistant U.S. attorney. Kimball says he’s excited at the prospect of building a West Coast practice that will complement Morgan’s East Coast practice. Kimball left the U.S. attorney’s securities fraud unit in July to spend time with his family. “I had a pretty serious illness in the family and went to North Carolina,” Kimball explained. “I wanted time to figure out where I wanted to be, spend time with family.” Prior to joining the Department of Justice, Kimball worked at the SEC Division of Enforcement in both Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. He also worked for three years as a litigation associate at Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York. “I worked with [Kimball] and recruited him to the U.S. attorney’s office from the SEC because of the accounting fraud cases we had in the pipeline,” said Caldwell. “He gives us somebody with skills and experience that few people have.” Lisa Tenorio-Kutzkey, who worked with members of the task force on energy market manipulation issues, joined the firm as an associate last year. Caldwell says that out of respect, she isn’t recruiting any members of the task force still involved in prosecuting Enron cases. But she adds that she would certainly be interested in bending the ears of certain task force members when they consider moving into private practice. Other former Enron task force members have landed on different perches: Sam Buell is a visiting professor at the University of Texas School of Law; John Kroger teaches at Lewis & Clark Law School; and Patrick Robbins and Matthew Jacobs, who worked closely with the task force, joined Shearman & Sterling and McDermott Will & Emery, respectively.
