Reed Smith has hired three corporate lawyers in San Francisco. Catharina Min, a corporate and securities partner, is joining from Squire, Sanders & Dempsey. Bradley DeJean, a project finance partner, comes from Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner. And Devin Cuyler, a sourcing transactions partner, is from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Cuyler said a big draw at Reed Smith was the 1,500-lawyer firm’s global platform. “My clients are very happy having a truly strong international practice,” he said, declining to name those clients. Min represents emerging as well more established companies, including a number of Korean clients. “I was really impressed with how the firm was devoted to growing its corporate practice,” said Min, adding that she would be bringing over most of her clients, whom she declined to name. DeJean, who works on financings for energy, transportation and housing projects, will help lead Reed Smith’s project finance, said John Iino, a Los Angeles partner who heads the firm’s corporate and securities practice. DeJean would not comment on whether he’ll be bringing clients over. Both DeJean and Cuyler are more junior partners, and Iino said that’s something Reed Smith sees as a plus. “Part of the strategy is to find entrepreneurial ‘up and comers’ that we are confident will take off in our platform,” said Iino, adding that the firm is “poised to build significant teams” around the new hires. Reed Smith added two other corporate partners in Los Angeles in April. The firm also lost two corporate partners in San Francisco to DLA Piper in May.
