Early this week, Masood Sohaili, an equity partner at O’Melveny & Myers, took advantage of an early retirement package the firm was temporarily offering. He is 50 years old.

“Everything lined up perfectly,” said Sohaili, who is moving his affordable housing practice to Manatt, Phelps & Phillips as an equity partner. “I was thrilled about the opportunity at Manatt, and I was thrilled that I was able to take the retirement — everything worked out great.”
