Lovell White Durrant has expanded its Chicago office from 11 lawyers to 17 in the past three months. The latest recruit to Lovells' niche reinsurance and consumer credit litigation practice in Chicago, which opened just under two years ago with the poaching of two partners from Chicago firm Sidley & Austin, is Anne Fortney. Joining with "of-counsel" (consultant) status, Fortney was for 10 years a partner with the Washington DC office of Carlsmith Ball Wichman Case & Ichiki and for the four preceding years was the associate director of the US Consumer Protection Bureau. Other recruits are Neal Moglin, also joining as of-counsel, from Chicago law firm Kaplan & Begy; Linda Dubnow, from Streich Lang in Phoenix, Arizona; James Chareq, from Stuart & Branigin in Indiana; Markus Heyder, from Latham & Watkins in Chicago; and Phillip Bock, from Lord Bissel & Brook based in Chicago.
