King & Spalding Recruits Gibson’s Moyé to New Dallas Office (1) – Bloomberg Law

1 minute, 26 seconds Read

Veronica Moyé has joined King & Spalding as a partner with the business litigation practice group in its newly opening Dallas office, the firm said Monday.

King & Spalding’s move into Dallas mirrors that of several other Big Law firms that have sprouted in Dallas, Austin and elsewhere in Texas in recent years.

Moyé is a litigator who has focused on antitrust and intellectual property cases, she said.

Before starting at King & Spalding on Monday, she co-chaired Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s global litigation practice group and served that firm’s executive committee.

Moyé said her move was based in part on the opportunity to help build an office from the ground up in her native Dallas, as well as the firm’s overall “impressive trajectory and growth.”

The firm’s Dallas office also currently includes a dozen associates and counsel, and two other partners who also joined the firm over the last six months, including Sean Royall, global practice head of the firm’s antitrust and consumer protection practice, and IP lawyer Alfonso Chan. Royall joined from Sidley Austin, while Chan moved from McKool Smith.

Moyé said she expects the Dallas office to grow rapidly, though she said the firm is focusing on the caliber of the attorneys they hire rather than reaching a specific numerical target.

King & Spalding’s Dallas office will specialize in corporate, finance and restructuring, business litigation, government investigations, real estate and investment funds, and product liability and mass tort work, according to a firm statement.

Last September, Seyfarth Shaw opened a Dallas office with two Bryan Cave partners. Blank Rome opened an office there in July.
