Keith Halleland, one of the founders of Halleland Lewis Nilan & Johnson, is leaving to start a new law firm — and taking his name with him.

Halleland’s new firm will focus on business law and consulting when it launches this spring, according to a news release issued Thursday by the 50-attorney, Minneapolis firm now known as Nilan Johnson Lewis.

“I am proud of what we have achieved together over the years,” Halleland said in the release. “I am very excited about building something new, and I look forward to establishing a firm where my focus will be on the work I really love – business law and consulting.”

Nilan Johnson Lewis President Matthew Damon called Halleland “a big part of our growth and success over the 13 years we have been in business,” and said he expects the two firms to work together.

Former Staff Attorney's Discrimination Suit Against Covington Back On Track
Blog News | 2009/07/27 17:04
According to The National Law Journal, a federal judge on Friday revived the discrimination suit filed by former Covington & Burling staff attorney Yolanda Young against her old firm. Last we reported, Judge Reggie Walton of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia had dismissed the case after Young and her attorney, Latif Doman of Doman Davis, failed to show up in court.

Young asked the judge to reconsider, saying that Doman had simply written down the wrong time for the conference on his calendar. She pointed out that although the judge had dismissed the case without prejudice, more than 90 days had passed since she received a right-to-sue notice from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Therefore, she would not be able to file another claim under Title VII or the D.C. Human Rights Act. That was far too harsh a penalty for a small oversight, Young contended.

Walton seems to have agreed. The case is back on, with the next status conference scheduled for Dec. 18.

Young, for those who don't recall, is the writer who after leaving Covington, published a long essay on the Huffington Post comparing conditions at her erstwhile employer to the Jim Crow South.
