Named in 2013 by The American Lawyer as one of the “Top 50 Big Law Innovators in the Last 50 Years,” Keith Wetmore recently concluded 12 years as Chair and Chief Executive Partner of Morrison & Foerster LLP, one of the 25 largest law firms in the U.S. and the largest firm in San Francisco. Under Mr. Wetmore’s leadership, the firm grew substantially and was named Chambers Global “USA Law Firm of the Year” for 2013, among many other accolades.
Mr. Wetmore holds a BA from Northwestern University and received his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. He resides in San Francisco and New York. While his current travel schedule is not conducive to a canine companion, he lives with a hole in his heart the exact size and shape of a Boston Terrier. He hopes to fill it soon.
