Continuing with a growth spurt that has already added three new offices to its roster so far this year, Ogletree Deakins has announced that it will open a fourth. Its new Minneapolis outpost, which is to open Thursday, will be its 39th United States office.
The labor and employment boutique is bringing in three new partners to run the Minneapolis practice: Cynthia Bremer, who will serve as managing partner, Patrick Martin and Hal Shillingstad, reports the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
Bremer and Martin were most recently at Fulbright & Jaworski, and Shillingstad was with Flynn Gaskins & Bennett in Minneapolis. However, all three of the new Ogletree partners formerly practiced together at Flynn until 2007.
Earlier this year, the 450-attorney firm opened new offices in Denver, Las Vegas and Orange County, Calif. It was established in 1977.
“This move not only continues our strategic growth, but also deepens the level of service we provide to our Minneapolis-based clients. It’s a great fit for our clients and our firm as this is a dynamic, cohesive, and talented group,” says firm managing shareholder Kim Ebert in a written statement to the Business Journal.
