      Dear Wenton, this is the firm I was talking about in my pm:



      Updated Feb. 11, 2016

      Philadelphia law firm Blank Rome LLP is hiring roughly 100 lawyers from Dickstein Shapiro LLP, a once-stalwart Washington, D.C., law firm that has been on shaky ground for years.

      Dickstein Shapiro, which opened its doors in 1953, will cease practicing law.

      The deal, which includes lawyers in New York and D.C., will create a law firm with more than 620 attorneys in 13 U.S. offices and in Shanghai. The combination doesn’t include Dickstein’s Los Angeles office.

      The announcement, made Thursday afternoon, comes after weeks of defections from Dickstein, which dropped in size from around 350 lawyers a few years ago to less than 120 as of this month. Recent departures include Dickstein’s entire Connecticut office, which moved its practice to Holland & Knight LLP.

      Dickstein made headlines last year when one of its lobbyists, former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, was indicted and later pleaded guilty to a federal criminal charge tied to alleged hush-money payments.

          The entire universe of so called BIG LAW is changing and the results are going to be fewer such lawyers.
