Where are they now? The Howrey lawyers make their way

In the year before Howrey went under, the firm had a headcount of 242 lawyers in Washington. After the firm’s collapse on March 15, 2011, those lawyers flooded the Washington legal services market. This article takes a look at how those lawyers fared in finding new homes for their talents. According to the report, ten months after the firm’s collapse at least 134 Howrey lawyers have moved to other D.C. law office, and several more have taken jobs with government agencies or in-house at corporations. In the main the Howrey lawyers moved in groups, with entire practices shifting to large rivals, such as the 32 antitrust attorneys who went to Baker Botts, the 15 antitrust and environmental lawyers that moved to Baker & Hostetler, the 10 intellectual property and antitrust attorneys that were picked up by Mayer Brown, the nine construction and litigation lawyers that shifted to Pillsbury, and the six antitrust and litigation lawyers that moved to Dewey & LeBoeuf.
