Howrey has recruited the managing partner and co-chair of the IP litigation group of Dewey Ballantine’s Silicon Valley office. Jeannine Yoo Sano will join Howrey’s East Palo Alto office, leaving her former office with eight attorneys, including only one partner. Dewey’s shrinking numbers are largely attributed to the failed merger with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, after which many attorneys got offers elsewhere. Sano was drawn to Howrey because of the firm’s focus on IP, antitrust, and global litigation. The addition of Sano is a part of Howrey’s plan to expand in the Bay Area; accordingly, an antitrust partner was recently hired in San Francisco.
