The chief of Dickstein Shapiro’s energy practice is leading a five-lawyer team to Crowell & Moring.
Longtime partner Larry Eisenstat started work at his new firm’s Washington, D.C., offices today, along with two other partners, a counsel, an associate and a senior policy adviser from Dickstein Shapiro, according to the Blog of Legal Times and Reuters.
“Through their sophisticated understanding of energy markets, their project development and management skills, and their corporate transactional experience, the team will help Crowell & Moring clients navigate regulatory challenges, advise on emerging policy issues, structure and document corporate and transactional matters, as well as tackle bet-the-company disputes,” said Scott Winkelman in a Crowell press release. He co-chairs the firm’s environment, energy and resources group.
Eisenstat told the BLT that he had been recruited from Dickstein through a friend who had friends at Crowell. Dickstein Shapiro has more than 300 attorneys; Crowell has almost 500.
Chairman Mike Nannes of Dickstein shapiro wished the departing lawyers well.
