Only three months after announcing a massive layoff, Weil Gotshal & Manges is seeing the voluntary departure of nine of its partners—all from its Dallas office.
Seven partners, plus two former Weil national practice co-chairs, are jumping ship. Eight of the partners are heading to Sidley Austin. Yvette Ostolaza, Penny Reid, Vance Beagles, Angela Zambrano, Yolanda Cornejo Garcia and Michelle Hartmann will be working in Sidley’s commercial litigation group. Two other Weil partners—Angela Fontana and Kelly M. Dybala—will be joining Sidley’s private equity practice.
