Williams Montgomery scores team of 8 litigation lawyers
Steptoe & Johnson has lost a team of eight litigation lawyers, who departed the firm to take up positions at Chicago litigation boutique Williams Montgomery & John.
The team is led by Christopher J. Barber, and includes two other partners and five associates. The group specialises in complex litigation, arbitration and trial work.
"In light of the evolution of commercial litigation over the past decade, Williams Montgomery & John was the right fit for us at the right time,” said Barber. “I’m looking forward to helping the firm continue to grow its complex commercial trial practice.”
