Spencer Barasch ‘Transitions’ out of Andrews Kurth

Back in May, I wondered how much longer Andrews Kurth could continue to employ Spencer Barash, a lawyer that we had to remove from our Best Lawyers list because of some Allen Stanford-related shenanigans he was involved in (you’ll have to follow some links; it’s complicated). Well, an alert FrontBurnervian points us to a story (paywall) in The American Lawyer that says Barasch is on his way out. Explaining why Barasch’s profile page had vanished from the Andrews Kurth website, a managing partner told the magazine: “Spence Barasch is still a highly valued member of Andrews Kurth. However, he is in the process of transitioning his legal practice. Under those circumstances, we have agreed that it’s best not to continue to publish his website biography during the transition period. The firm continues to fully support Spence in all of his endeavors.”
