Just as the pandemic destigmatized the remote-work model that is the hallmark of distributed firm FisherBroyles, the firm’s inclusion into the Am Law 200 has made the idea of joining a firm with no offices more palatable to many potential laterals, and FisherBroyles is taking advantage.

In the past month, FisherBroyles has picked up talent from three other Am Law 200 firms. In early May, the firm hired labor and employment benefits partner Kyle Flaherty, who jumped over after 27 years at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. Later that month, the firm’s recently opened London office brought on CMS partner Neil Hamilton, a capital markets attorney who previously practiced at Jones Day, Paul Hastings and Clifford Chance.
