Big news in Biglaw: Roberta A. Kaplan — the legendary litigator whose history-making Supreme Court win in United States v. Windsor toppled the Defense of Marriage Act, helped bring about nationwide marriage equality, and rocketed her to fame (and Above the Law Lawyer of the Year honors) — has left the storied partnership of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. Kaplan and three other high-powered lawyers have launched what should soon become one of the nation’s leading litigation boutiques, Kaplan & Company LLP. (Christine Simmons of the American Lawyer broke the news over the weekend, and Stephanie Russell-Kraft had a Big Law Business story on it earlier today.)
