Hatch has indeed landed at Blackwell Burke

It's confirmed: Mike Hatch is now with the Minneapolis law firm of Blackwell Burke. Minnesota Lawyer Associate Editor Barbara Jones called over there today and left a message for Hatch on his voicemail at the firm.

It will be interesting to see whether the former AG with a penchant for consumer-rights advocacy work maintains that focus or goes corporate. As we mentioned in the post below, Blackwell Burke's current client list includes Aetna, Coca-Cola, General Mills, Medtronic, Northwest Airlines and 3M.

So. He's of counsel to a new, 15-member firm. Note that Cory Gordon at Blakwell Burke worked for Mike as a deputy when Mike was AG.

Is this one of the highly lucrative job offers he turned down to work for Lori? I don't think so.

It will be particulary interesting when the Lawyers Board rules on whether Mike's intereference in the Ramsey County case involving Judge Leary constitutes unprofessional conduct. . . . Mike may be a highly paid paralegal after all.
