Cooper Ashley Offers Commentary on Legal Practice for Twin Cities Monthly

September 22, 2008

Cooper Ashley, chair of Maslon's Governance Committee and member of the firm's litigation practice group, offers commentary in the October 2008 issue of Twin Cities Business. The article, "Practice Change," appears in the Special Focus/Business Law section and surveys Ashley, along with the chairman of Hildebrandt International and various attorneys from other top Minneapolis law firms, on new trends in the legal profession resulting from recent market pressures.

"We're extremely busy in the litigation group," reported Ashley, adding that the same holds true for the firm's financial services and estate planning attorneys. When asked how the firm deals with competition from the East and West coasts, Ashley responded, "We'll compete for a national company's business if it's here. Clients will get better, more economical service than they would from a Manhattan law firm who is going to have to hire local counsel anyway."
