17-Lawyer Howrey Group, Including New MP of Brussels Office, Heading to Shearman & Sterling

  • Print

Updated: The latest chapter in what is becoming an almost daily update on partners leaving Howrey: A 17-lawyer antitrust group in Brussels is exiting for Shearman & Sterling.

The contingent is led by five partners, including both Stephen Mavroghenis, the new managing partner of the Brussels office, and Trevor Soames, its former managing partner, reports the Lawyer.

Approximately a dozen associates are also expected to join the Brussels office of Shearman & Sterling when the group makes its move next week.

“This important addition to our antitrust capabilities reflects our continued commitment to expanding and integrating our European service offering. We are now even better positioned to counsel clients across the continent,” says Creighton Condon, who serves as the European managing partner for Shearman & Sterling, in a press release (PDF) provided to the ABA Journal.

There is still no word yet about whether a large block of Howrey partners who reportedly have received offers from Winston & Strawn will accept.

Meanwhile, yesterday’s news is that two intellectual property litigation partners are leaving for Levenfeld Pearlstein and Ropes & Gray.
