Ever since Husch Blackwell acquired Wisconsin firm Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek in 2016, it has aimed to expand its health care practice in the state.

The Missouri-based Am Law 200 firm advanced that goal in its Madison, Wisconsin, office this month by adding eight lawyers from Godfrey & Kahn, led by partners Tom Shorter, Jed Roher and Jon Anderson, and another group of four from Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren led by partners Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki.
