“SAN FRANCISCO — After building his career at Latham & Watkins, Timothy Crudo has jumped to Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass as head of the firm’s white collar defense and government enforcement practice.

Crudo, a former federal prosecutor, joined Coblentz earlier this week. The firm’s smaller size—about 80 lawyers—and its deep roots in San Francisco were a draw, he said.
“Rather than being one of 50 white collar lawyers, I can be one of a couple to really grow a practice,” he said.
. . .
“Tim Crudo is a talented lawyer, a great friend and, like the Coblentz firm, a San Francisco institution,” Steven Bauer, global co-chair of Latham’s white collar defense and investigations practice said in a statement. “We wish him the very best.”

Crudo, a third generation San Franciscan, said he is already working on some matters at Coblentz but plans to tap into his network to bring in business. “Building a practice involves rolling up the sleeves and trying to grow what I have and we have already,” he said.”
