Thompson Coburn LLP has selected Chicago partner Todd Rowden as an additional vice-chair of the firm’s Business Litigation Group.

The firm’s 77-attorney business litigation group currently is chaired by partner Steve Higgins and vice-chaired by partner Roman Wuller.

“In his new role Todd will work closely with our business litigation group leaders and Chicago attorneys to build upon the significant litigation practice we’ve developed in Chicago,” said Thompson Coburn Chairman Tom Minogue. “As one of our most highly-respected, team-oriented trial attorneys, Todd is well-suited for this role.”

Rowden earned his law degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
