O’Melveny has hired litigator Nexus Sea, who handles matters involving pharmaceutical companies and financial institutions, as a partner in its New York office. Sea, who moved from McDermott Will & Emery LLP, joined O’Melveny’s product liability and mass torts practice group. “O’Melveny provides me with an extraordinary opportunity to join a top-ranked product liability practice and team up with some of the best trial lawyers in the country,” Sea said. “As an advocate of increased diversity and inclusion in our profession, O’Melveny’s collaborative culture, diversity and inclusion focus, and history of investing in community align perfectly with my values.” Sea’s practice covers a number of industries. “As a trial lawyer and litigator focused on the pharmaceutical, technology and financial services industries, the practice synergies were evident,” Sea said. “Indeed, the industries that my clients work in are very much in sync with the industries that O’Melveny represents.” Richard Goetz, co-chair of the firm’s litigation department, said Sea is a “strong advocate in the courtroom with a winning record for pharmaceutical, health care, financial services, and Fortune 500 companies. His experience will further bolster our practice strengths in many areas.”
