GP Expands Cali Presence

Goodwin Procter LLP has opened new offices in San Diego and downtown Los Angeles. The San Diego office will be chaired by new hire Stephen Ferruolo, who previously was a partner with Heller Ehrman and co-chair of that firm's corporate/VLG group. He will be joined by fellow ex-Heller partner Ryan Murr, while the downtown LA office will include three new partners focused on real estate: Dean Pappas and Dani Vogt, both from Mayer Brown, and Edward Hagerott Jr., who joins from Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP.
