White & Case to lose yet another partner

March 30, 2010 Patent litigation partner Jennifer L Yokoyama is set to leave White & Case for in-house position at Nike.

'We are sorry to lose such a talented young partner in Jennifer' said Bijal Vakil, executive partner of White & Case’s Palo Alto office. 'Nike has a good eye for talent. We wish her and Nike well and look forward to remaining in contact.'

Above the Law has reported the opinion that since Yokoyama was the only partner with a presence in Palo Alto, the firm will need to respond to her departure by relocating people to Palo Alto or by closing the office. The unnamed source says that associates in the Palo Alto office are all actively looking for new jobs.
