Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr Opens Minneapolis Office
Eight Partners Join from Gray Plant Mooty
Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP announced that it has opened an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota, continuing its expansion into the Midwest. The office, the firm’s 16th, will be staffed by eight partners from the Minneapolis office of Gray Plant Mooty.
"Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr has always been committed to finding the best talent, wherever that happens to lead us," said Managing Partner Barry F. Levin. "We are thrilled to be entering a strong market that lines up so well with our core service offerings and industry focus, and doing so with such a highly regarded group of attorneys." He said the firm’s plan is to aggressively grow the Minneapolis office.
The firm has several core clients headquartered in Minnesota who will benefit by an office staffed with local attorneys who are well-entrenched in the market. And firm leaders see great potential to strengthen many relationships with contacts based in the city.
"The sterling reputation, collaborative culture, industry expertise and full range of legal services is what drew us to Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr," said Alfred W. Coleman, Managing Partner of the new office. “With 16 offices and more than 400 attorneys, we will now be able to serve clients much more effectively and routinely operate in the markets where they are located."
"Having a deeper bench of attorneys with the savvy and strong business acumen of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr will be invaluable to us," said Kevin Warren, Chief Operating Officer of the Minnesota Vikings and corporate client of Alfred Coleman.
Joining the firm are Maxwell J. Bremer, Alfred W. Coleman, Samuel W. Diehl, Stephen R. Eide, Kermit J. Nash, Nancy Quattlebaum Burke, Douglas M. Ramler and Andrew J. Daly. The team will also bring several staff members.
The group focuses on corporate, mergers and acquisitions, emerging companies, corporate governance, securities, energy, environmental, labor and employment and employee benefits. They have extensive experience with clients in the food and beverage, life sciences, energy, technology, transportation and financial services industries
