Lateral Partner Evan Stone Offers Advice to Lawyers Considering Moving to Other Firms


Law360 featured words of advice from lawyers and consultants for those considering moving to a new firm. Gardere Partner Evan D. Stone, who joined the Firm in January 2014, told the publication that the key question he and his team considered before making the move was "Are we expected to service existing Firm business, or can we leverage the Firm's strengths but maintain the commitment and value proposition to our clients?"

"Our goal – in considering a combination – was a Firm that would take us to the next level but not interfere," Mr. Stone said. "We were sensitive to cultures dominated by institutional clients. Gardere proved ideal, combining the best features of an institutional caliber Firm – reputation, integrity and deep relationships – with a self–starter, hands-off mindset. The only feedback from management all year has been 'How can we help?'"

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
