Los Angeles has become a center of recruiting activity over the past nine months, as at least seven mid-sized East Coast firms have opened or expanded offices in LA. Duane Morris; Dreier; Goodwin Procter; Hunton & Williams; McGuireWoods; Steptoe & Johnson LLP; and Venable are some of the firms that have made a move on the West Coast. The new offices tend to be in Century City, a pricier area, where clients are often involved in new media, entertainment, and technology. Several of the firms have gained large groups of lawyers from local firms; Goodwin Proctor, for example, recruited a group of real estate lawyers from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman.
