The times are a-changin’ at Hunton & Williams. Chairman Gordon Rainey, who has led the Richmond-based firm since 1994, retired from his post last week. The partnership elected his deputy, Thurston Moore, to take his place. Moore, 59, has helped Rainey, 65, more than double the firm’s head count to 780 lawyers in 17 offices across the globe. Moore says he plans to focus on building the firm’s newer offices. The firm is bringing back some young blood to its leadership with the appointment of Walfrido Martinez, 39, as managing partner. Martinez left the firm in late 2004 to become general counsel for Diageo North America Inc. But the former executive committee member says he was wooed home from his in-house job by the chance to lead a firm “that I think is on the verge of even more significant growth.”
