Dinsmore Adds Five Lawyers to its Chicago Office

The law firm of Dinsmore & Shohl announced via a press release today that it has added five lawyers to its office in Chicago. Three partners and one associate join the firm from Thompson Coburn LLP. The remaining associate came from a smaller law firm.

Robert Lucas rejoins Dinsmore from Thompson Coburn.

“I’ve admired Dinsmore’s commitment to growth and the way they serve their clients. When they walked me through the benefits of leading the Chicago office, it was an easy move,” said Lucas. “This is also a homecoming for me. I began my career as an associate with Dinsmore and learned a lot during my time there. Not many people are afforded the opportunity to return to their career starting point as a leader.”
