Commenters are reporting that Winston has rescinded every DC offer. And Boland is out to Baker Botts.
Which means that the only substantial piece of Howrey moving to Winston is the Houston office. I have to ask: why? Everyone else ran from Winston because they were offered too little money, had conflicts, or were just totally creeped out by the way this thing was going down. Why is Houston hanging on? No better options? Lack of foresight? Just a way for the fairly senior partners there to ride off into the sunset in a way that they were supposed to when Howrey & Simon merged with Arnold White & Durkee?
Any other news? Thoughts? Confusion?
