Goodwin Procter has boosted its technology and litigation practices with three partners from Big Law rivals who are joining the firm in New York and Santa Monica, California.

The firm announced on Thursday, October 14, it had hired former Foley Hoag partner Heather Miles and Alexander Rea, former special counsel at Cooley, who have joined Goodwin’s technology practice in New York. Ex-Manatt, Phelps & Phillips partner Adrianne Marshack also joined Goodwin’s complex litigation and dispute resolution practice in Santa Monica.

Miles represents technology, healthcare and life sciences clients on corporate matters, and Rea represents private companies and their investors on matters including equity and debt financings and M&A.

Anthony McCusker, the firm’s technology practice co-chair said in a statement that the addition of Miles and Rea will “add additional depth” to the firm’s offerings for young tech companies and their investors in “New York’s dynamic tech ecosystem.”

“We are thrilled to welcome them to our team as we continue to scale our global destination practice serving clients in every segment of the technology industry and through all stages of the corporate lifecycle,” he said.

Marshack focuses on class action lawsuits and complex commercial litigation, while also advising clients on employment issues such as wrongful termination and discrimination.
