1. Randy Mastro, a fixture at Gibson Dunn since 1998, is leaving the firm. Three people said Mastro is in talks to join rival King & Spalding, but others said he is retiring from the business.

His clients have included former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Madison Square Garden owner James Dolan, and online-gambling outfit DraftKings.

Over time, Mastro has developed a reputation as a big business generator who's a pitbull of a litigator.

His ability to fatten the law firm's wallets was evident in his work with oil company Chevron. In one of his biggest cases, Chevron ran up a $32 million tab with Gibson Dunn back in 2014.

In addition to his work in private practice, the 66-year-old Mastro gained a reputation for squaring off against organized crime as a New York federal prosecutor and public official. In 2012, the New Yorker reported that he was known to wield a baseball bat during meetings.
