Nine years ago, Tim Dickinson and Lisa Landmeier left Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s D.C. office to start a firm of their own. The two expanded their shop, Dickinson Landmeier, to 11 attorneys, focusing on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations, political risk insurance, and international arbitration for clients including AIG. Even though the firm’s rates were about 10 percent below market, Dickinson says they found that “being just a small firm, and just in Washington, placed some limitations on our work.” Last week they found a match, but it wasn’t with their former California partners. Instead the litigators chose to fold their office into another Southern California firm, Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, which currently boasts more than 110 lawyers in Washington. “This is exactly what we have been looking for,” says Barbara Brown, Paul Hastings’ D.C. managing partner.
