3 practice leaders exit Dorsey & Whitney

The leader of the labor and employment practice group at Dorsey & Whitney has left the firm to join the Minneapolis office of Littler Mendelson, a San Francisco-based firm known for its national labor and employment practice.

The departure of litigator Doug Christensen follows last month’s exit of two other practice group leaders, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reports.

Former intellectual property litigation co-chair Paul Ackerman left the New York office of Dorsey and Whitney along with another partner to join Andrews Kurth,

Also exiting last month was the Dorsey firm’s former private equity group co-chair, Chris Bellini. He went to the Minneapolis office of Cozen O’Connor, which is headquartered in Philadelphia.
