The Lateral All-Stars
The most significant partner moves of 2010.
The Lateral Report covers partner moves in and out of Am Law 200 firms between October 1, 2009, and September 30, 2010. We tracked 2,014 moves during this period. We count firm-to-firm moves if a lawyer was a partner in the former firm and is a partner at the new firm. We also count moves if a partner left for a position in business, government, or education, or joined a firm as a partner from one of those fields. Lateral moves are counted when one firm acquires another, but not when two firms merge and combine names.
