Chicago-based firm Jenner & Block elects new MP
Jenner & Block has elected Terrence Truax as its new managing partner. Traux has been with the firm for 26 years, and co-chairs the Patent Litigation and Counseling Practice.
Outgoing managing partner Susan C. Levy is leaving the firm at the end of the month to assume her new position as executive vice president and general counsel at Northern Trust Corp in Chicago.
The firm’s chairman, Anton Valukas, said of Truax: "He (Truax) has strong leadership skills and management experience and has the confidence of our clients and partners. Terry also embodies the firm's core values, managing a significant personal practice while also maintaining an active pro bono practice and commitment to the community."
