Schnader

From the article:

Quote:
"The expanded space, the location itself and the aesthetics are all big advantages," says Schnader D.C. Managing Partner Martin Mendelsohn in a statement.

In February, almost half the D.C. office of Schnader Harrison left to become the founding core of Los Angeles-based Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton (www.sheppardmullin.com).

Until recently, Schnader Harrison and Sheppard Mullin were sharing office space at 1300 Eye St. NW. Sheppard Mullin has ballooned to 21 lawyers in Washington this year and has been looking to take over the space since it opened.
I don't know the buildings in particular, but based on location I wouldn't expect a siginicant difference in cost. It does have the advantage of not being uncomforatbly close to the people who just abandoned ship.

Venable loses the head of its Rockville office to the Federal District Court for Maryland (free reg may be required).

I wish JFTS were around to give us some insight. Anybody know if he's around?

Move to 30th Street...

Any chance that associates will see better bonuses post '05 due to all that tax savings? After all, they have to eat in the lousy restaurants too, and pay city income tax to boot. (LvHB)

Firm control structure

Interesting article from the Baltimore Business Journal on evolving administrative structures in big firms.

Interesting insight from Bill Reynolds. Anybody know if he's still of counsel at Piper (which one would think the artilce would mention, since Piper is a featured firm).

OK, maybe I should have specified "regular lurker" rather than "poster".

Anyone have any info?
