Featured in the National Law Journal 2013 Midsize Hot List of “20 law firms that in no way are stuck in the shadows cast by giant competitors” are two SCG Legal member firms. Delaware member firm Richards Layton & Finger is described in the article by Cravath, Swaine & Moore partner Stuart Gold as “very efficient. They’re always on top of what the law is, they know the judges well, they know how much to do and what you don’t have to do. They’re clearly one of the leaders down there and on the short list of firms we recommend to clients.” Los Angeles member firm Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp meanwhile is described as the firm “Hollywood’s biggest players [turn to when they] get into legal spats over their jobs.” The article also mentions that the firm “launched a labor and employment practice last year in New York by hiring Gerald Hathaway, a former partner at Littler Mendelson and father to actress [and Academy Award winner] Anne Hathaway.” NLJ writes in an introduction to its 2013 List that “The firms we’ve selected for our Midsize Hot List are led by forward-thinking attorneys who are guiding their organizations in new practice directions, amassing more business in mainstay practices and spreading into new regions.”
Colorado member firm Ireland Stapleton Pryor & Pascoe has moved its offices to 17th and California in Denver. The firm’s new address is 717 17th Street, Suite 2800, Denver, Colorado 80202-3324. Its member attorneys’ email addresses and phone numbers remain the same.
South Carolina member firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough had added bank regulatory attorney Dwight Smith III to its Washington office. Mr. Smith was previously deputy chief counsel for business transactions at the Office of Thrift Supervision, where he oversaw significant mergers, acquisitions, and offerings and new entrants to the banking industry. He will counsel clients on financial and regulatory issues, including duties and obligations arising from the government's response to the financial crisis.
Paul Bancroft has returned to Nevada member firm Lionel Sawyer & Collins to become of counsel, after leaving in 1995 to establish his own practice. Mr. Bancroft will represent clients on state and local tax matters, with an emphasis on property and sales and use tax. He is the professional representative of American Property Tax Counsel for the State of Nevada and has authored two reference works in his field published by the American Bar Association.
