It’s been a busy summer of attorney shuffling in Richmond, fueled in large part by unrest at LeClairRyan. But other firms are getting in on the warm-weather poaching.
Local real estate firm Thalhimer has officially rid itself of a nearly two-year legal dispute with a former longtime employee.
LeClairRyan scored a legal victory last week against a controversial former client, even as it’s in the midst of going out of business in the face of a mass attorney exodus.
“If we win this, we’re going to blow a hole in the Virginia franchise law,” said Bell’s founder Larry Bell. “It’s going to change the brewer-wholesaler relationship in the state of Virginia, and I think we have a decent shot.”
The three-decade-old Richmond law firm that just a few years ago had nearly 400 attorneys is going out of business in the face of continued mass departures.
A week after its co-founder and namesake left for a downtown rival, more local LeClairRyan attorneys have followed suit.
The 300-acre Summer Lake development in the county’s Moseley area is central to a lawsuit filed last month related to a years-long dispute between former business partners.
On the heels of a continued mass exodus of its attorneys and reports of its uncertain future, Richmond law firm LeClairRyan was hit with yet another blow last week.
In the face of mass defections at the law firm that bears his name, LeClairRyan co-founder Gary LeClair is leaving for a Richmond rival.
As lawyers continue to head for the exits at LeClairRyan, the Richmond law firm’s chief executive sought on Wednesday to dispel some of the rumors about its future that have swirled about this week.
