ABSTRACT
This article reports that Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP is set to attack the California litigation market with the launch of a full-scale disputes practice. Co-head of the firm's IP and media practice Kenneth Steinthal is relocating to Silicon Valley along with five other litigation specialists. Steinthal is currently working alongside IP and media co-head Bruce Rich in defending former Napster backer Bertelsmann against music publishers and recording companies, which are seeking more than $17bn in damages. Global head of litigation Jim Quinn said the firm's lack of a broad litigation capabilty on the West Coast had left it unable to service clients in major disputes.
