A veteran Indianapolis business litigator has left one of the larger law firms in the city to hang his name on a much smaller practice.
Wayne C. Turner, who chaired the litigation group at Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, has joined forces with John David Hoover and Andrew W. Hull to create Hoover Hull Turner LLP.
The firm had existed since 2001 as Hoover Hull LLP.
Turner, who resigned from Bingham on Thursday, brings a wealth of experience to the firm. Some of the areas his business litigation practice concentrates on include securities and corporate governance disputes, antitrust issues and utility regulation.
Turner brings two Bingham partners with him—Michael Limrick and Ken Munson—giving the firm a total of 15 lawyers.
With 99 lawyers, Bingham Greenebaum Doll ranks as the city’s fourth-largest firm.
Hoover and Hull have known Turner for several years.
“For more than 20 years, we’ve been colleagues, co-counsel and friends with similar views of the changing legal marketplace and how firms can best serve their clients,” Hull said in a written statement.
Turner earned an economics degree from Purdue University in 1982 and graduated from the Indiana University McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis in 1985.
