Thompson & Knight LLP is opening a Los Angeles office, on Oct. 1, which will be led by partner Shelly A. Youree. A Crowell & Moring LLP litigator joins the Century City office as of counsel.
Youree will serve as relationship manager and represent clients in tax, executive compensation, employee benefits, and equity and incentive plans both within and outside of California. Her practice encompasses tax and ERISA issues involved in executive compensation and benefits issues in mergers and acquisitions; consulting, design, drafting, and implementation of executive and employee compensation and benefit arrangements, the firm said.
Bruce J. Zabarauskas joins the firm as counsel from Crowell & Moring, where he has represented institutional lenders, including national banks, special servicers, and investment banks, in commercial real estate foreclosure actions and Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. He also has experience, at both the trial and appellate levels, litigating corporate breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, defamation, and First Amendment issues.
"The opening of a California office and the addition of Bruce further strengthen our geographic reach, enhance the services we provide, and demonstrate our commitment to current and prospective clients located in or doing business in California," says Emily A. Parker, managing partner at Thompson & Knight.
Thompson & Knight will provide a range of legal services to its clients including banking, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, oil and gas, real estate, labor and employment, trial, and health care law. The firm has approximately 330 attorneys with 11 offices in Texas, New York, California, Michigan, and in Mexico, Algeria, and Europe.
