Five partners, including the managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop's Washington, D.C., office, are moving to the local office of Goulston & Storrs.
It was"such a good opportunity we couldn’t say no," said Maureen Dwyer, who has headed Pillsbury's D.C. office since Shaw Pittman merged with Pillsbury in 2005, to the Blog of Legal Times.
Partners John Epting, Phil Feola, Allison Prince and Paul Tummonds Jr. are joining Dwyer along with four associates, an architectural historian and a legal assistant, the BLT reports. Dwyer told the BLT that the group has been together 20 years at Pillsbury, Shaw Pittman, and originally at Wilkes Artis.
"Our goal since coming to Washington has been to create the District's strongest and broadest real estate practice," Goulston co-managing director said in a press release (PDF), "The addition of this group is another major step in that effort."
Pillsbury Chairman Jim Rishwain wished his colleagues well in the release. "I am confident that we will continue to work with Maureen, Allison, John, Phil and Paul on joint projects and opportunities."
