Four attorneys from a downtown law firm were lured away to rivals in recent weeks.
Both McGuireWoods and Roth Doner Jackson Gibbons added to their ranks attorneys most recently with Williams Mullen.
On Wednesday, McGuireWoods announced the addition of Robert F. Redmond and Clement D. Carter. They started with the firm Feb. 12.
Carter, who had been with Williams Mullen since 2002, joins McGuireWoods’s environmental litigation practice. He received his law degree from William and Mary.
Redmond, who also had been with Williams Mullen since 2002, joins the firm’s toxic tort practice. He’s a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center.
Both Carter and Redmond had also worked together at LeClairRyan. Their addition brings McGuireWoods’s attorney headcount in Richmond to 224.
Also this week, real estate attorneys Andy Condlin and Jennifer Mullen announced they left Williams Mullen to become partners at the firm now known as Roth Doner Jackson Gibbons Condlin, PLC.
The two-year-old firm was founded in Northern Virginia by former Williams Mullen attorneys. It opened its Richmond office in 2011.
Williams Mullen’s ranks have fluctuated over the past year. In April 2012, David Reed, David DuVal, Mark Miller and Billy Mauck Jr., all former partners at Williams Mullen, left to join Spotts Fain.
There have been additions, too. The firm has picked up several attorneys and beefed up its lobbying practice in recent months.
In December, Thomas W. “TJ” Aldous Jr. joined the firm as a partner in Richmond. It added two attorneys to its Hampton Roads office late last year. And in October, Daniel Watkins joined as an associate in its litigation department. It has 100 attorneys at its Richmond office, according to its website.
The firm has added three lobbyists to its Washington, D.C. lobbying practice since late 2012. It launched its lobbying arm in summer 2011.
