Downey Brand's new location, the U.S. Bank Building at 621 Capitol Mall, is at the halfway point. Earlier in the summer, developer David Taylor hosted a halfway-mark celebration at the site, offering a limited number of elevator rides to the top of the building - a big hit with guests. Downey Brand is on track to move to the new site in fall of 2008.

Laurie Wong Hodges joins the firm's environmental law practice group as an associate. She received her J.D. from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 2005 and her B.A. from the University of California, Irvine in 1999. Prior to joining Downey Brand, Hodges was a judicial extern for Federal Magistrate Judge Kevin S.C. Chang of the Federal District Court of Hawaii.
