Pillsbury partner to leave because of conflict of interest

July 16, 2014 Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman partner Benjamin Chew has resigned from the firm soon after being hired from Patton Boggs, citing a potential conflict of interest.

Chew was the head of Patton Boggs’ commercial litigation and antitrust practice before joining Pillsbury earlier this year.

“My departure is exclusively due to a potential conflict relating to my prior affiliation with Patton Boggs,” Chew told the National Law Journal. “I have the utmost respect for Pillsbury, which the firm kindly advises is mutual.”
