William Helvestine, the managing partner and founder of Epstein Becker & Green’s San Francisco office, has left to join Crowell & Moring.
Helvestine, a Chambers-rated health care and employment litigator, didn't respond to a message left at his new office, and officials from Crowell did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday afternoon.
Helvestine was a member of Epstein Becker's board of directors, and his departure comes at a time of apparent upheaval at the firm. Texas Lawyer, a sibling publication, reported Tuesday that the bulk of Epstein Becker’s Houston office had left to join Cozen O’Conner. In January, the firm closed its Miami office.
