The article reports that merging firms of the U.S. Pillsbury Winthrop LLP and Shaw Pittman LLP have made their first bold moves to transfer unwanted practices, sending a 20-lawyer insurance litigation team to Hunton & Williams and three aviation lawyers to Hogan & Hartson LLP. The group of four partners, one counsel and 15 associates is led by lawyers Walter Andrews and Lon Berk, who will join Hunton's Northern Virginia office. The Hogan aviation team is led by partner Robert Cohn. Although the litigation practice is successful, it is not seen as core to the strategy.
