Howrey partnership to vote on wind-down

With the departure of over 100 partners since 2009, the question of the future of Howrey has been growing ever more acute. And it seems that the question might soon be answered, with Howrey partners set to vote on the wind-down of the firm next week. Last week, Winston & Strawn sent out confirmation letters to around 35% of Howrey's remaining partners that have so far accepted job offers from the larger firm. But the two firms still have a lot to talk about, including roles for associates and support staff, redundancies and the purchase of certain Howrey assets, including the firm's brand.
