Powell Goldstein’s Washington office has lost yet another partner. W. Bruce Shirk, who headed Powell’s government contracts practice in D.C., has joined the Washington office of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton. The news comes in the wake of several other recent departures from Powell. Shirk focuses on government and construction law, including cost accounting issues, defense and aerospace contracting, and Medicare and Medicaid contracting. “With close to four decades of experience, Bruce brings with him a wealth of government contracting knowledge and expertise in resolving a variety of disputes. He will be a great asset to our clients,” said John Chierichella, a partner in Sheppard Mullin’s government contracts group, in a press release. Powell’s chairman James McAlpin Jr. told Legal Times last week that despite recent departures, the firm is becoming “a better version” of itself, and that he is committed to transforming Powell into one of the “leading Southeastern firms.”
