Dewey & LeBoeuf’s Washington office continued to hemorrhage attorneys Monday with the news that four Dewey lawyers had landed at rival firms across town.
Former Dewey antitrust partners Marc Schildkraut and Jacqueline Grise have joined Cooley, while partner James Bowe Jr. and senior associate William Rice head to King & Spalding. Rice joins King & Spalding as counsel.
Bowe, whose practice includes energy, regulatory, transactional and finance, has experience before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. His clients include energy project developers, natural gas pipeline and storage operators, oil and natural gas pipeline shippers and energy industry investors.
“Jim and Bill’s experience and expertise in energy matters, particularly in natural gas regulatory and natural gas project development matters, fit well with our practice,” Neil Levy, co-chair of King & Spalding’s global energy practice, said in a written statement.
Schildkraut, a former assistant director of the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Competition, has handled antitrust clearance in matters related to Chevron/Texaco, Exxon/Mobil, PepsiCo/Quaker and Boeing/McDonnell Douglas, among others.
Grise focuses her practice on defending corporate clients on matters related to domestic and international mergers and acquisitions work. She has represented clients before the FTC and the Department of Justice, among other agencies.
“Their addition deepens and broadens our ability to serve clients in complicated, transformative transactions,” Ryan Naftulin, partner in charge of Cooley’s Washington office, said of Schildkraut and Grise in a written statement.
Schildkraut and Grise could not immediately be reached for comment. Bowe was not immediately available.
