As traditional New York-born firms continue to flock to the Golden State, Willkie Farr & Gallagher said on Thursday it launched a Los Angeles outpost, adding a trio of entertainment and wealth-focused partners from Venable.

The New York-based Am Law 50 firm announced that Alan Epstein, Michele Mulrooney and Alex Weingarten will join the office and advise on a variety of M&A transactions, private wealth, estates and trusts and litigation matters.
