The new office will be led by Drew Kitchen, with the support of the firm’s newest lateral hire - employment benefits litigator Christopher Rillo.
The new office will initially focus on three practice areas: insurance and financial services litigation, complex ERISA litigation (including class actions), and sports and entertainment law.
"Drew [Kitchen] is one of our outstanding young shareholders who also happens to have a proven record of success in the California courts,” said Mark Drew, managing shareholder of Maynard Cooper. “In addition, Drew has been particularly effective at expanding our firm's West Coast client base, and I have every confidence that he will be even more successful once he is living in San Francisco. Having one of our lawyers who has been with this firm his entire career heading up a new office made this an easy decision.”
