Just two months after overhauling its management structure, Patton Boggs is facing another series of partner defections. Partner Eric Kuwana, who had recently been promoted to deputy chairman of the litigation department, moved to Illinois-based Katten Muchin Rosenman’s D.C. office on Aug. 11. Kuwana will play a similar role at his new firm, where he will serve as deputy chairman of Katten’s national litigation department and a member of its board of directors. Robert Luskin, co-chair of Patton Boggs’ litigation department, calls the departures a personal and professional loss but notes that the firm’s litigation department has grown in size and revenue since last year. “The fact is, we live in a very fluid legal market. It’s not like it used to be,” Luskin says. “We spend a great deal of time and energy to find people that fit in our practice. We are successful very, very often, but there are lots of other people who do the exact same thing.” Litigation partners Ugo Colella and Catherine Sun Wood, who had made partner this year, are joining Kuwana at Katten this week after some failed last-minute attempts by Patton to persuade them to stay. David Kistenbroker, the managing partner of Katten’s Chicago office and chairman of the firm’s national litigation department, says the three will “bring a tremendous capability in the commercial litigation realm and in securities litigation.”
