Daniel Frohling, a partner in the Intellectual Property Group, has been named Administrative Partner-in-Charge of the office and Jordan Sigale, a partner and recent lateral hire, will act as the Lateral Hiring Partner.

“As a recent lateral hire myself, I have quickly learned that Loeb & Loeb has a well thought out system when it comes to hiring,” said Sigale. “I look forward to playing a larger role in this process and seeing that it continues to develop.”
John Frankenheimer, Loeb & Loeb Co-Chair said, “Jordan will be responsible for identifying potential lateral hires for the Chicago office and will work closely with the lateral-hiring partners in other offices to coordinate a continued effective hiring strategy which has served the firm very well and is a key component to the firm’s recent successes.”
