Only weeks after a prominent corporate lawyer left O'Melveny & Myers for Morrison & Foerster in Washington, another has followed suit.
Scott Lesmes joins Morrison & Foerster as a partner in the firm's corporate finance practice, the firm announced Monday. He follows partner Martin Dunn, who moved to the firm earlier this month.
Lesmes previously was a senior counsel in the capital markets practice of O'Melveny, which he joined in 2009. He also was chief legal officer for Allied Capital Corp. and deputy general counsel for Fannie Mae.
"I get to team up with some of the most widely recognized and respected securities lawyers, as well as work closely with Marty once again," he said. "It also gives me the chance to be a part of a practice that is a destination securities resource for our clients."
