In the same month that Goodwin Procter laid off dozens of lawyers and professional staff, the law firm is adding dozens to its attorney ranks. 

Goodwin announced on Wednesday the addition of a top health care regulatory attorney, Greg Demske, in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, the law firm is preparing to welcome a large lateral group from Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders as it plans to launch a Philadelphia office. The group could number about 30 to 40 lawyers from Troutman, according to a report from the Philadelphia Business Journal, which first reported the news. Goodwin declined to comment about its Philadelphia plans.
