Boutique firm MoloLamken makes top hire
MoloLamken has hired Andy DeVooght from the US Attorney’s Office. DeVooght has previously worked as a partner at Winston & Strawn and clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court, but has opted not to return to biglaw after his stint with the US Attorney’s Office in Chicago.
DeVooght is one of nine partners at the boutique firm, which has grown fast since its launch in 2009. Founding partner Steven Molo observed: “The market has responded favorably to our business model as we’ve grown from five to 21 lawyers in just four years, a period during which many firms have been retrenching.”
