University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law - Summer 2013

Ranked 26th on the AmLaw 100, Orrick’s global footprint includes 25 offices worldwide in places such as Beijing, Berlin, Hong Kong, Milan, Moscow, Paris, Rome and Tokyo. Orrick also has a major presence in Sacramento with nearly 40 attorneys in its local office, many of them Pacific McGeorge alumni. The Sacramento office also celebrates an anniversary this year—30 years—making it among the longest-standing and most stable law offices in town. Tom Welsh, ’89, the managing partner in charge of the Sacramento office, has worked for the firm since he graduated from law school. During that time, Welsh has built a national reputation for insurance regulatory and insolvency expertise. His practice includes the continuous representation of the California Insurance Commissioner and the Commissioner’s Conservation & Liquidation Office for more than 22 years. Other alumni partners in the Sacramento office include Tim Long, ’88; Jenna Megan, ’92, and Michael Weed, ’98, who is among the firm’s newest litigation partners. Orrick also has strong ties to the Pacific McGeorge faculty. Adjunct Professor Courtney Linn, who teaches Federal Courts, and former U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott, who teaches National Security Law at Pacific McGeorge, are both partners in Sacramento. Pacific McGeorge’s connections to Orrick reach all the way to Paris, where Diane de Moüy, ’89 LL.M., is a partner. Orrick has also recruited many of the law school’s recent honors graduates to work at its Sacramento office. Cameron Desmond, ’09; Katie Christine DeWitt, ’06; Brandon Dias, ’05; Patricia Eichar, ’07; Mayling Leong, ’10; Leo Moniz, ’12; Analea Patterson, ’03; and Bryan Victor, ’03, are all associates or senior associates. Pacific McGeorge would like to thank Orrick for its continuous support of the law school. Tom Welsh individually and the Orrick group combined are two of Pacific McGeorge’s top lifetime donors!
