Law360 Profiles New Lateral Partner Travis LifeLaw360 profiled Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP partner Travis W. Life regarding his recent arrival to the firm and his practice in Entertainment and Media Law.
According to the article,
Life, a longtime solo practitioner before joining Leavens Strand, told Law360 that he faced a choice between going back solo or joining another firm once he learned Leavens Strand was set to close at the end of 2018. But after talking with some Swanson Martin partners with whom he had developed working relationships, "it really made sense to bring my practice over to Swanson Martin & Bell and join their practice group," Life said.
Chicago's media and entertainment legal industry provides attorneys the opportunity to "venture out" and have a broad practice under the entertainment umbrella, but practicing in the Midwest also allows Life and other attorneys to serve "really salt of the earth, hardworking people that want to do everything they can to put forth a really good quality and enjoyable piece of work," he said.
