KIRKPATRICK OPENS OFFICE IN PALO ALTO Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham announced that it will open a new office Monday in Palo Alto. Deborah Bailey-Wells, administrative partner of the firm’s San Francisco office, will also head the firm’s Palo Alto office. She said the firm was taking up an entire building — about 20,000 square feet — at 630 Hansen Way in Palo Alto Square. Recent hires, IP partner Jon Michaelson and Linda Usoz, an of counsel in the firm’s labor and employment group, will work in the Palo Alto office. Both lawyers worked at Coudert Brothers, where Michaelson also headed the firm’s Bay Area offices. Bailey-Wells said she hopes to build out the firm’s Palo Alto office to 50 lawyers “as quickly and as prudently as possible.” Other Kirkpatrick attorneys will split their time between the San Francisco and Palo Alto offices. They include partners Dirk Michels and Kevin Trock and of counsel Peter Heinecke. Kirkpatrick’s San Francisco office, which opened with three lawyers in 2000, now has more than 40 attorneys. “It was a challenging time to build it because of the downturn,” said Bailey-Wells. Kirkpatrick has moved more than 100 lateral partners into the firm in the past three years. This week, Gordon & Rees partner Raymond Gill, a toxic tort litigator, joined Kirkpatrick as a partner in the firm’s San Francisco office. — Marie-Anne Hogarth
