Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, the ultra-profitable Minneapolis-based firm, has lured three lawyers from Lovells and will set up shop in New York City for the first time. Robins Kaplan chair Martin Lueck says the litigation-heavy firm has been looking to move into New York after building up strong relationships with corporate clients there. The news comes about 2 1/2 years after Robins Kaplan closed its Washington, D.C. offices, a move spurred in part by the departure of key partners for Arent Fox.
