James Doroshow was about to start work as a partner at L.A.’s Manatt, Phelps & Phillips two weeks ago but a last-minute client conflict got in his way. Even though the intellectual property litigator had already moved boxes over from his former firm, Baker Hostetler, the client wouldn’t waive the conflict. “Clients have to make their own choices, and they felt they couldn’t do it,” he said. “Manatt handled it well, but I decided to look elsewhere.” On Thursday, he’ll start at L.A.’s Liner Yankelevitz Sunshine & Regenstreif instead. Given his state of limbo, Managing Partner Stuart Liner worked fast to bring him on board. “I brought him in Friday morning and we struck the deal Friday at 6 p.m.,” Liner said. “It was a fighting advantage.” Liner said he’s looking forward to adding Doroshow’s IP expertise to the firm. He will be bringing the majority of his clients, a list that currently includes Cinemax, Genuine Parts Co. and Nu Flow Technologies. “I talked with several firms and appreciate the hoops they jumped through on my behalf,” Doroshow said. “I ultimately selected Liner because it was the best fit for my practice.”
