Nixon Peabody loses 14 more lawyers

Fourteen lawyers from Nixon Peabody have defected to rival firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. The shift comes just weeks after several high-profile Nixon Peabody lawyers left for DLA Piper. The group set to join Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman includes Mats Carlston, Nixon's former head of global finance, Bart Pisella, who will lead Pillsbury's corporate trust team, and Doug Schneller, who will head Pillsbury's investment group. Brian Flanagan, operations partner and a member of Nixon Peabody's management committee, said that the departures will not have a material financial impact on the firm, and that partner mobility is a fact of the market to which no firm is immune.
