The Chicago office has grown 8% over the past year and added two new attorneys in 2023.
Thompson Coburn LLP has added Tina Bird as a Partner to the firm’s growing Chicago office. Tina joins the Business Litigation and Real Estate Practice Groups, and has been named a Co-Chair of the Firm’s Construction Litigation subgroup. Tina most recently was a Partner with Freeborn & Peters LLP.
“We are excited to welcome Tina to our Chicago office who will bring her wealth of experience in construction and business litigation to our team,” said Katriina McGuire, Chicago Managing Partner. “Our office remains in high-growth mode and the addition of Tina is not only a boon to our practice, but underscores our continued expansion.”
“Tina is an impressive leader in the real estate and construction litigation areas, and has the necessary industry experience to serve any party involved in construction from inception through any litigation. She is a perfect addition to our Firm’s construction and real estate practices,” said David Duffy, Co-Chair of Thompson Coburn’s Business Litigation practice group. “We are thrilled to welcome her to our team in Chicago and as a member of the broader Construction Litigation Practice.”
“Having started my career at Thompson Coburn’s legacy firm FagelHaber LLC, I look forward to returning to my roots,” said Tina. “The firm has such a great reputation both in Chicago and nationally and provides an opportunity to collaborate with many talented practitioners across the country.”
Tina represents owners contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects, designers, construction managers, and builders in all aspects of their business transactions. Her work includes drafting and negotiating contracts; dispute resolutions; arbitration and mediation; corporate transactions; real estate litigation; claim preparation; project analysis and civil trials. She earned her BA and JD from the University of Florida.
