Experience

Since 1982 Bobbie McMorrow has represented over 50 of the top 200 AmLaw firms and numerous smaller and regional law firms in their efforts to expand in California and other major markets in the country. An expert in strategically sound growth and a specialist in talent acquisition and integration, she has acted as trusted advisor to dozens of managing partners, executive committees, executive committee members, practice group chairs, and office managing partners.

She has worked on over 30 law firm mergers and acquisitions, including the following: Katten Muchin and Wyman Bautzer; Bingham and Riordan McKensie; Bingham and Alschuler Grossman; Manatt Phelps and Steefel, Levitt; and Proskauer and McCambridge Deixler.

Bobbie McMorrow has represented most of the AmLaw top 50 firms in their national expansion over the last 32 years. In recent years, she has concentrated on the representation of talent in Los Angeles, New York, throughout California, Washington DC, and Chicago. Much of that representation has included large groups of partners in specific practice areas or entire departments moving from one law firm to another. In addition, Bobbie has represented on an exclusive and retained basis, a number of law firms in their search for high-level talent in their home or regional markets.

In recent years Bobbie has expanded her services to include one on one consulting with law firm managers on a personal and confidential basis to further develop their leadership, strategy and professional and personal goals. She also works with CEO’s and other high level personnel outside of the field of law as strategic personal and professional consultant.
