Morrison & Foerster is closing its Orange County office in the wake of a decision by the head of the outpost to leap to Manatt, Phelps & Phillips.
MoFo’s Orange County office at one time had 50 lawyers, but the number had dwindled to 17 after several recent departures. A Manatt press release says the two lawyers will join the firm’s litigation division as partners in Orange County.
"Dean and Tom are well-known litigators and community leaders, both with impressive histories of public service," said Ellen Marshall, administrative partner of Manatt's Orange County office, in the press release.
