Amicus Search Group Places Leading Trial Lawyers Across the Houston Market

HOUSTON, TEXAS – It should come as no surprise that the market for transactional legal talent remains strong. However, in the midst of a strong corporate market and an allegedly lackluster litigation climate, Amicus has contributed to selective growth in the litigation arena as well. In the first nine months of 2007, in addition to expected success in transactional law, Amicus succeeded in placing a considerable number of high caliber litigation attorneys in a variety of leading national law firms.

In January, Amicus represented San Francisco based, Sedgwick Detert Moran & Arnold, in the opening of their Houston office. By placing a group of veteran litigators, led by Julia Adams, Amicus was able to aid Sedgwick, an AmLaw 200 firm, with a heightened presence in the Texas market, an integral part of the firm’s strategic plan for the future.

As Sedgwick’s chairman, Kevin Dunne, explained at the time, “The opening of the Houston office reflects our strategic expansion and underscores our goal of capturing the Texas marketplace. We now have wide bandwidth in Texas to meet the comprehensive business and legal needs of our clients.”

Amicus also represented the Atlanta’s Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, in their recruitment of the highly respected and experienced Houston trial lawyer, Steven L. Roberts, formerly a partner with Fulbright & Jaworski.

More recently, Amicus assisted Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP by recruiting three notable lateral litigators — Winstol “Winn” Carter, formerly of Fulbright & Jaworski, Denise Scofield, formerly of Connelly Baker Wotring & Jackson, and Felicia Harris Kyle, formerly of Beck Redden & Secrest.

“While we have seen considerable growth in transactional law, as evidenced by our recent achievement in placing six former Fulbright & Jaworski real estate lawyers with Greenberg Traurig, we have similarly achieved quality results for our clients seeking assistance with litigation hiring.” said Amicus founding partner, J. Lee Allbritton, Jr.
