Gray Plant Mooty Names New Litigation Practice Group Chairs


MINNEAPOLIS (April 26, 2018) – Gray Plant Mooty has named a new chair to co-lead its Litigation Practice Group. Attorney Loren Hansen joins chairs Brian Dillon and Rick Kubler to lead the firm’s litigation team.

Hansen fills the leadership role held by John Krenn and Charles Maier. Krenn and Maier stepped aside from their practice group co-chair roles to continue to serve clients as active members of the Litigation Practice Group and serve the firm in other leadership roles. Krenn will continue to play an important leadership role in an annual trial training program for the litigation associates and chair the Contingency Fee Committee. Maier remains co-managing officer of the firm.

Hansen is a Registered Patent Attorney who focuses his practice on patent infringement and other complex civil litigation. He also serves on the Gray Plant Mooty Finance & Business Operations Committee and Attorney Personnel Committee.

“It is an honor to join Brian and Rick as co-chairs of the Litigation Practice Group,” Hansen said. “Under their leadership, along with past chairs John and Charlie, the litigation team excelled inside and outside of the court room. We will continue that tradition and use that solid foundation to achieve even more.” 

Gray Plant Mooty’s team of more than 30 litigators advise clients from Fortune 100 corporations with global operations to sole proprietors.
