Two Vinson & Elkins partners to launch boutique
Vinson & Elkins partners have departed the firm to launch their own litigation boutique in Houston, Texas under the name Schick & Copeland.
Robert Schick and Morgan Copeland Jr have both worked at Vinson & Elkins for more than 30 years, and Schick was co-leader of the litigation and regulatory department at the firm for the last three years.
Copeland explained that he and Schick have talked about building their own litigation boutique since they were associates. “It's been a long-standing dream of ours,” he said, “and we have finally decided to pull the trigger and do it.”
