Morgan Lewis Health Regulatory Practice Lures More Sonnenschein Lawyers

  • Print

Morgan Lewis & Bockius is adding two health care partners and five associates from the Washington, D.C., office of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal to its attorney roster. They include Scott Memmott, who was formerly a vice-chair of Sonnenschein’s national health care practice group.

That brings the total tally of Sonnenschein health care regulatory lawyers raided by Morgan Lewis this month to 13, according to the Blog of Legal Times. The practice group at Morgan Lewis now totals 30 lawyers, including six partners from Sonnenschein whose moves to the Washington, D.C., and San Francisco offices of Morgan Lewis were announced several weeks ago.

A Sonnenschein spokesman tells the BLT that the firm doesn’t usually discuss lawyer departures, but notes that Sonnenschein’s health care practice has added at least six lawyers since the year began.

More details about the lawyers making the move from Sonnenschein are provided in Morgan Lewis press releases yesterday and early this month.
