Thompson Coburn is moving into the Chicago real estate market in a big way, betting the industry and the practice area will rebound in the next year to 18 months. The firm has hired 10 real estate lawyers from the Chicago boutique Schain, Burney, Ross & Citron, including name partners Michael Ross and Bernard Citron. After the addition, 20 lawyers will work on real estate matters in Thompson Coburn's Chicago office. That's the same number as at the firm's main St. Louis office.
