Forgive the shameless plug, but if you're in Washington on Dec. 14, we hope that you will check out a National Law Journal and Legal Times panel with a group of legal business power players on the hunt for lateral partners. Our panelists include J. Warren Gorrell, chair of Hogan & Hartson; R. Bruce McLean, who chairs Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld; legal recruiter Lynn Mestel; and Thomas Milch, chair of Arnold & Porter. NLJ Editor in Chief David Brown will moderate. The panel will be held at the Willard InterContinental Hotel. Registration begins at 3 p.m., with the panel at 3:45 and a cocktail reception to follow.
