CHICAGO — Attorney Harold L. Kaplan, the former chairman of the now defunct Gardner, Carton & Douglas and now a partner at the successor firm Drinker Biddle & Reath, will join Foley & Lardner in Chicago and lead the firm’s efforts to expand its business reorganizations practice group. Attorney Mark F. Hebbeln, who like Kaplan specializes in bankruptcy matters, will also join Foley & Lardner from Drinker Biddle and be a member of the business reorganizations group in Chicago, according to a person familiar with the moves. The two attorneys are expected to start at the new firm on Feb. 11, the source said. Kaplan, 56, will spearhead Foley & Lardner’s efforts to build its business reorganizations practice locally and nationwide and head up its corporate trust and bondholders’ rights practice. He was co-chair of the corporate restructuring group at Drinker Biddle in Chicago and was a past management committee chairman. He has represented financial institutions, debtors and trustees in bankruptcy proceedings, according to Drinker Biddle’s Web site. Hebbeln, 37, will also be a part of the corporate trust and bondholders’ rights practice area. The two attorneys may attract other attorneys from their former firm. Chicago-based Gardner Carton’s merger with Drinker Biddle took effect last year after the two firms announced plans to join together in 2006. Drinker Biddle has about 630 attorneys in 12 U.S. offices while Foley & Lardner has about 1,000 lawyers in 22 offices around the world.
