Feb 6, 2013, 05:45 pm CST

Three partners and a special counsel have exited McCarter & English for the Boston office of Holland & Knight.

Brian Leary, Diane McDermott and Jeffrey Stoler will all be partners at Holland & Knight; Richard Holtz, who had been at the 400-attorney northeast regional firm only about one year, will be a special counsel at his new BigLaw firm, the Boston Business Journal reports.

Leary and Stoler practice in the business section of Holland & Knight. McDermott and Holtz focus on real estate.

A Holland & Knight press release gives more details.

“Our office is on a path of steady growth in the region,” said Steven Wright, the firm’s Boston executive partner, in the release. “These attorneys are prominent members of the community and stars in their respective legal fields. Their practices complement our existing strengths nicely and they will bring great value to our local and national clients.”
