"As corporate activity continues to increase in volume and legal complexity in the post-COVID-19 environment, I look forward to helping Winston's clients navigate the complex issues they confront as they seek to achieve optimal results for their businesses and shareholders."
Jeff joins a growing cadre of new corporate partners at Winston being added across key U.S. markets, each strengthening capabilities in specific high-demand areas, including real estate, multi-jurisdiction tax and tax controversy, bankruptcy and restructuring, and M&A and capital markets.
"Jeff brings a strong record of success helping clients to engage the capital markets and providing counsel to some of the country's biggest companies," said Linda Coberly, Managing Partner of Winston's Chicago office. "Jeff joins Winston & Strawn at an ideal time as Chicago's business environment continues to see higher activity rates for companies across the lifecycle, from early-stage venture to private turnarounds."
