A former employee of Chicago-based Jenner & Block LLP will rejoin the international law firm as a partner.
Michael T. Wolf worked for Jenner & Block from 2003 to 2014 before leaving to be the corporate vice president and global chief counsel for corporate at Aon plc.
“With his extensive in-house and law firm experience, Michael has a unique and broad perspective that adds tremendous value to our client relationships,” said Terrence J. Truax, Jenner & Block’s managing partner, in a prepared statement. “Corporations turn to us for our ability to handle their most sophisticated corporate transactional and counseling matters, and Michael’s return strengthens our ability to provide counsel at the highest levels of excellence.”
Wolf’s law expertise includes public and private companies, joint ventures, start-ups and other business clients in a variety of corporate and transactional situations. His industries includes food, finance, automotive and consulting.
“For well over a decade, we have worked with Michael as both a partner and a client, watching him lead sophisticated mergers and acquisitions, and securities offerings, and seeing first-hand his deep understanding of the issues facing public and private corporations in a wide variety of industries,” said Joseph P. Gromacki, chairman of Jenner & Block’s firm-wide Corporate Practice. “His experience, insight and creativity make him exceptionally well suited to handle the most challenging and high-stakes matters. We are very pleased to welcome Michael back to the firm.”
Wolf said he has confidence that his familiarity with Jenner & Block will aid him in building upon the practice and continuing its growth and reputation.
