Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe continues to feed on the carcass of Coudert Brothers. Last week the San Francisco-based giant poached Russia-focused corporate partner Olga Sirodoeva from the D.C. office of Coudert along with associate Dmitry Ivanov. Sirodoeva was the first Russian-born lawyer at the firm, and the move comes after Orrick quickly grew its Russia practice group by poaching all of the partners from Coudert’s Moscow office this spring. One notable Coudert partner who hasn’t made the move to Orrick is Richard Dean, the managing partner of Coudert’s Washington and Moscow offices and head of its Russia practice. Dean did not return calls, but two firms with large Russia practices, Baker & McKenzie and DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary, have been actively courting Coudert lawyers. . . . Two District-based firms made moves to strengthen their presences outside the region. Steptoe & Johnson added seven lawyers to its Phoenix office from the litigation boutique Beshears Wallwork Bellamy. Hogan & Hartson announced that it has opened an office in Geneva with the addition of partners Charles Adams and Michael Stepek from Winston & Strawn. Adams had been a member of Winston & Strawn’s executive committee and previously worked out of its Washington office. But Winston & Strawn managed to pick off star labor and employment partner Connie Bertram from Venable late last month. Bertram, once considered to be among the next generation of leaders at Venable, leaves with former associate Patricia Exposito, who joins Winston & Strawn as of counsel.
