O’Melveny’s 2015 Partner Class Noted in Multiple OutletsDecember 19, 2014 The announcement of O’Melveny & Myers’ 2015 partner class received coverage in multiple publications, including The Recorder, Daily Journal, Global Competition Review, Global Investigations Review, San Francisco Business Times, and Washington Business Journal.
Global Competition Review highlighted the promotion of Washington, DC-based Antitrust and Competition counsel Courtney Dyer and Katrina Robson to the Firm’s partnership in its December 17, 2014, edition. Antitrust and Competition chair Richard Parker told the publication, “[w]e are fortunate to have them in the firm and very pleased to welcome them as partners.” The article also quotes Dyer and Robson on how they became interested in antitrust law. “I like learning about a wide variety of industries and diving into companies’ corporate strategies,” Dyer said in the article, adding, “[t]he bulk of my work is regulatory, and we have a great global transactional practice at O’Melveny that allows me to work with clients in diverse industries and in many parts of the world.” Robson told the publication that she was “immediately hooked” after being introduced to antitrust law. "I loved the complexity of the subject, and its intersection with areas like intellectual property and privacy. It’s very dynamic and broad,” she said.
Robson and Dyer, along with Jeff Hoffner (Los Angeles), Edward Moss (New York), Amy Siegel (Century City), Stephen Sullivan (Los Angeles), Jennifer Taylor (San Francisco), Bruce Tobey (Century City), and Nicholas Whilt (Los Angeles), will be admitted to the Firm as partners on January 1, 2015.
