May 11, 2015News Releases
Dinsmore & Shohl continues to grow in Chicago by welcoming Thomas J. Hayes to the office. Hayes will practice out the Litigation Department.

Hayes joins Dinsmore from Thomson Coburn LLP where he focused on commercial litigation involving construction and real estate disputes, actions arising from the sale of goods, defamation suits and financial services litigation. In addition, he advises clients on how best to protect trade secrets, negotiate and enforce restrictive covenants and conduct internal investigations.

Hayes earned his J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law and also received his Bachelor’s of Science in Finance from Michigan State University.

In the year since Dinsmore gained the Chicago office through the Peck, Shaffer & Williams merger, it has experienced rapid growth adding 13 attorneys to that location and enhanced the services offered. Chicago moved from being Dinsmore’s smallest location to the 9th largest office in the firm. Earlier this month, Labor and Employment Partner Sara A. Weinberg joined the firm.
