Levin, chairman of Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe, another San Francisco firm. “A lot of people are going to want to understand how a firm of the stature of Brobeck could end up dissolving. Whether it’s the Internet boom or growing too fast for the volume of work or too much emphasis on one practice area, I don’t know.”
