CHICAGO — Miller, Canfield, Paddock & Stone, a firm founded in Detroit, will continue its push into cities with large Polish populations with the opening next month of an office in Chicago. The firm plans to open an Chicago office with five attorneys and will have space to at least double its attorney headcount by next year, said Thomas Linn, the firm’s Detroit-based chairman emeritus. For now, the firm is hiring five lawyers away from the Chicago office of McGuire Woods, including Paul Durbin, the son of U.S. Senator Richard Durbin; John Senica; Jan Hamblin; Darryl Davidson; and Robert Zielinski. The lawyers have specialize in commercial finance, labor and business law. Senica will lead the office, Linn said. “That’s the full set we’re going to have initially, but we expect the office to grow,” said Linn, declining to provide an expansion target. The firm decided to move into the Chicago market because of its many clients in the city, including Sears, Boeing Co. and Kmart, but also because of the city’s large Polish population, Linn said. Miller Canfield has longtime ties to Poland mainly through partner Richard Walawender, who studied in the country, supported the Solidarity Trade Union and eventually became a legal advisor to the group when it came to power in 1989. In addition to its office in Detroit, which has a large Polish population, the firm has had a presence in Poland for 15 years and currently has three offices there.
