Stephen Huvane, Robin Baum and Simon Halls, who left PMKHBH in 2009 to form Slate with Ina Treciokas and Andy Gelb, have bolstered their New York office by hiring former PMKHBH cohorts Jennifer Plante and Bianca Bianconi. Plante brings Laura Linney, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Wilson and Forest Whitaker while Bianconi brings Liv Tyler, Mena Suvari, Rufus Wainwright and Monet Mazur. They make the move March 1. Slate separately just signed Taylor Lautner.

“We all worked so well together during our years at PMKHBH and we are excited that they are bringing their professionalism, dedication and rock solid reputations to Slate,” Halls said.
