"There was intense competition, Literally every firm in town was trying to get him," he said. "He is clearly one of the top commercial trial lawyers in the country.

Numerous sources said Steinberg was not pleased with Hunton's mandatory retirement policy for firm leaders, which bars managers older than 65.Hmm, I understand the impulse but that sort of prophylactic rule has a Wild in the Streets/Logan's Run feel to it.
Steinberg denied that's why he left Hunton, saying the firm waived the policy for him. However, the firm named a co-managing partner in Miami last year, Juan Enjamio.

Congrats on the move, Marty.
