Has Hatch found a home at Blackwell Burke?

More than one reliable source has told Minnesota Lawyer that former state Attorney General (and former “director of complex litigation” under current AG Lori Swanson) Mike Hatch has joined Minneapolis law firm Blackwell Burke.

I put a call in to firm partner Jerry Blackwell this morning to confirm the news, but have not heard anything back as of yet. The firm, whose website currently lists 13 attorneys (but doesn't list Hatch yet), specializes in commercial litigation and products liability defense, which might make for an interesting fit considering Hatch’s history of being a bulldog on behalf of consumers, not corporations.

The firm’s client list includes Aetna, Coca-Cola, General Mills, Medtronic, Northwest Airlines, and 3M.
