ATTORNEY JOSEPH RUSSELL DEPARTS LOCAL FIRM TO ACCEPT PARTNERSHIP WITH PROSKAUER ROSE GOETZ & MENDELSOHN IN SAN FRANCISCO

 SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Joseph W. Russell, an expert in corporate and banking law, has been elected a partner to join the San Francisco office of Proskauer Rose Goetz & Mendelsohn, a New York-based law firm with offices throughout the United States and Europe.
 Russell, 45, becomes the second major addition to Proskauer's local corporate practice in less than a year. He now joins William E. Horwich, who specializes in general corporate and securities law, as the second senior-level member to be added to the firm's growing corporate practice in San Francisco. Russell ended a seven-year association as a partner with the San Francisco-based law firm of Graham & James to accept the Proskauer partnership.
 Horwich, a well-known Bay Area attorney and community leader who represents a broad range of business clients, joined the firm last March. He had been in private practice immediately prior to his affiliation with Proskauer, specializing in international business law and general corporate matters.
 "The addition of Mr. Russell underscores the growing importance of our corporate and business practice in San Francisco," said Dennis Daniels, partner-in-charge of Proskauer's Northern California office. "It is an area of specialization that requires intellectual versatility and extreme sensitivity to the needs of clients. Both Messrs. Russell and Horwich have demonstrated these qualities time and again."
 Russell has practiced law in San Francisco since 1977, when he served as legal counsel to the California Superintendent of Banks. From 1981 to 1984, he served as an associate in the San Francisco offices of Lillick, McHose & Charles. In 1984, he joined Graham & James as a partner.
 Russell's expertise on banking and related financial institution law includes a broad range of regulatory applications for both domestic and foreign financial institutions.
 A member of the American, California and San Francisco bar associations, Russell is a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree from St. Mary's College of California. He resides in San Francisco.
 Proskauer Rose Goetz & Mendelsohn, an international law firm with more than 360 attorneys, has offices in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Clifton, N.Y., Boca Raton, Fla. and Paris.
