Congrats! Patton Boggs Lawyers Land New Jobs

The 17 partners who departed Washington law and lobby firm Patton Boggs last week have scattered to several other national law firms.

In Washington, the five partners are David Farber, a health care regulatory lawyer who joined King & Spalding’s Food and Drug Administration practice; Ugo Colella, a business litigation specialist who joined Thompson Hine; environmental lawyers Henry Chajet and Robert Horn, and R. Brian Hendrix, a health and safety law specialist, all of whom are now at labor and employment firm Jackson Lewis.

Patton Boggs’ Dallas office, its second largest after Washington, took a much bigger hit. There, 24 attorneys — including 12 partners — left to open Holland & Knight’s new Dallas office, Holland & Knight announced last week. The group specializes in corporate and commercial finance, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and bankruptcy. The top partners now leading the Holland & Knight group include Michelle Suarez, former managing partner of Patton Boggs’ Dallas office, and Jim Chadwick, former co-chair of Patton Boggs’ business department.
