A month after Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz executive compensation partner Jeremy Goldstein left the venerable Am Law 100 firm to start his own practice, the country’s most profitable shop on a profits-per-partner basis has looked outside its ranks to find a replacement in Simpson Thacher & Bartlett partner Andrea Wahlquist.

Wahlquist, 44, joined Simpson Thacher in 1997 and became a leading member of the firm’s executive compensation and employee benefits practice in New York. She was part of a team of Simpson Thacher lawyers honored by The American Lawyer as Dealmakers of the Year in 2007 for their work on behalf of longtime private equity client KKR.
