(Reuters) - Mayer Brown is continuing to build out its new Salt Lake City office, adding two more partners from Stoel Rives since the outpost launched last week.

Mayer Brown said Thursday it has added Stoel Rives litigation partner Lauren Shurman, on the heels of its Jan. 27 hiring of Mark Hindley, another litigator from the firm, which has most of its offices in the western United States.

Chicago-founded Mayer Brown opened its Salt Lake City location Jan. 24 with three other Stoel Rives partners, a team of three associates and an existing Mayer Brown partner relocating from California.

It's the latest large global firm to make a splash in the Salt Lake City market, following others that entered the technology-heavy region last year, including Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Kirkland & Ellis and Foley & Lardner.

Salt Lake City is one of several regions that is currently luring large out-of-state law firms, including Austin, Texas.

Shurman and Hindley have both joined Mayer Brown's litigation and dispute resolution practice.

A representative for Portland, Oregon-founded Stoel Rives said the firm wishes them well.
