A group of 17 intellectual property lawyers from Jenkens & Gilchrist's Chicago office has closed a deal to open an office in the Windy City for Nixon Peabody -- the first Midwest location for the 680-lawyer firm. The deal has been in the works for weeks as Dallas-based Jenkens sheds lawyers and offices around the country. A spokesman confirms that Jenkens, which currently has about 130 lawyers firmwide, is "still talking about an ideal combination" with another firm.
