CHICAGO — Milwaukee-based Quarles & Brady LLP has hired veteran bond attorney Scott Bremer as a partner in its Chicago office to help the firm as it seeks to expand its public finance practice to cover the state of Illinois and local government issuers here.

Bremer, a tax specialist, left Chicago-based Pugh, Jones, Johnson & Quandt PC — where he was a partner — to join Quarles, which is seeking to carve out a chunk of legal business on Illinois deals. "I was happy at Pugh Jones but this was too good of an opportunity for me to pass up at this point in my career," Bremer, 61, said Wednesday.
