Upon David J. Hickton’s appointment as U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, the law firm Burns, White & Hickton became Burns White. A new logo and redesigned Web site complete the transition, the first name change that the firm has made since its inception in 1987. According to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct, law firms must change their names when a named partner takes public office. The Pittsburgh Business Times 2010 Book of Lists named the firm the region’s ninth-largest law firm, with 100 attorneys, led by principles Michael Burns and David White.
