Movin’ on Up New D.C. managing partners are popping up all over the place. Frederick McClure has taken over the position in Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal’s D.C. office, replacing Amy Bess, an employment and labor lawyer who ran the office for three years. “He has been an enormously important leader in the D.C. office and in the firm,” says Elliott Portnoy, Sonnenschein’s chairman. And McClure, who is a partner in the firm’s public law and policy practice, is no stranger to firm management. He was the managing partner of Winstead Sechrest & Minick’s D.C. office prior to joining Sonnenschein three years ago, and he also was the managing director of Public Strategies Inc. Additionally, he served as assistant for legislative affairs under President George H.W. Bush and was the special assistant for legislative affairs for President Ronald Reagan. “Part of my effort will be that we make sure we do our part in terms of growth,” McClure says. He added that he will be leading the D.C. office charge in building the firm’s client base, promoting pro bono and diversity, and in implementing the firm’s strategic plan. As to details of the plan, McClure is staying quiet, preferring not to divulge the ingredients of Sonnenschein’s secret sauce. Also taking the helm is Stephen Baskin of Kilpatrick Stockton. Baskin has just been named managing partner of the firm’s D.C. shop. He practices in Kilpatrick’s IP group and focuses on intellectual property litigation. Baskin takes over from George Marcou, who was snatched up by King & Spalding two weeks ago. Connie Robinson, who is the deputy chairwoman of Kilpatrick’s complex business litigation team, was also elected to the firm’s executive committee.
Howrey’s Ol� Howrey is adding a little Spanish flavor to its overseas offices, though siestas probably won’t be replacing the billable hour any time soon. The antitrust and IP-focused firm announced last week that is opening up shop in Madrid, adding the Spanish capital to a collection of European offices that already includes London, Paris, Brussels, Munich, and Amsterdam.
