Shareholders Michael Pegues
and Jason Wietjes
joined Polsinelli in March and say they were prompted to search for a new home after a client conflict for Pegues and Wietjes’s desire for a platform that would boost his work with the start-up industry. With many of the same clients and a history of working together and marketing together, they decided it made sense to move together, they told Law360 Monday.
Wietjes said Polsinelli became the front-runner for them early last fall and the clear choice for where they would relocate early in 2015. They said the firm’s culture and bench strength in key practice areas like pharmaceuticals and technology aligned with their goals, and that they want to help the firm become known as the go-to firm for start-up businesses in Dallas.
“We have clients who are growing in a number of different areas and are interested in becoming known for their innovations,” Pegues said. “The corporate practice at Polsinelli is solid and I think those lawyers will help our clients understand the different corporate forms that will serve as owners of their intellectual property as they enforce and grow their intellectual property assets.”
