“Southern Firms Seek New Horizons, Plus More Lateral Moves”
Thompson & Knight added ex-Whitewater counsel ROBERT RAY in New York from Fox Rothschild, according to the NYLJ. Ray, who in 2002 released a critical report of the Clintons before running into his own quasi-scandal a few years later, joined Fox Rothschild three years ago from Pryor Cashman. Thompson & Knight hired trial practice partner CHARLES SHEWMAKE in Dallas from BNSF Railway Corp., where he spent the past eight years as general counsel, according to sibling publication Texas Lawyer. Thompson & Knight also added labor and employment counsel SARAH YOUSUF in Dallas, where the former Kane Kessler associate in New York spent the past few years doing volunteer work.
