Maslon Featured in Minnesota Lawyer Article Regarding New Firm Name

January 22, 2015

Maslon was featured on the front page of Minnesota Lawyer on January 19, 2015, in an article titled "What's in a name?" regarding the firm's recent announcement of its name change to Maslon LLP. The article details the process of making the change, calling it an "emotional decision" for the firm which included contacting each of the founders' families personally. Bill Pentelovitch, Maslon's unofficial historian stated, "It felt like letting loose of something sacred, but it also felt like the right thing to do."

"Over time you want to align yourself with what's going on in the marketplace," stated Cooper Ashley, chair of Maslon's Governance Committee. "It was not something we took lightly."

In addition, the article states that "the firm carries a certain legacy that is important to the history of the legal profession in Minnesota." Closing with a tribute to Maslon's "founding fathers," the article notes the impressive legal credentials of Sam Maslon, the historic civil rights work of Hy Edelman, the impact of Irving Brand who served as Hennepin County's first Jewish judge, and the exceptional standard of community service set by Marvin Borman.
