Prominent Litigator Caryn Jacobs Joins Winston & Strawn as Partner

Today, Winston & Strawn LLP announced that Caryn L. Jacobs, a prominent litigator focusing on securities, accounting and auditing professional liability and ERISA litigation, has joined its litigation department in Chicago as a partner.

Jacobs, who joins Winston from Mayer Brown, brings more than 20 years of experience in a wide range of securities, accounting and auditing, ERISA, and other commercial disputes. Her experience includes the successful handling of complex individual, class, arbitration, and multidistrict actions at the trial and appellate level.

Formerly, Jacobs was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois’ Criminal Division, where she prosecuted dozens of criminal matters, eventually concentrating on criminal financial institution fraud cases.

Jacobs co-tried the high profile Lexecon v. Milberg case. The case resulted in a $45 million jury verdict against the law firm in question and led to a $50 million settlement. She also co-tried and won, on behalf of a Big Four accounting firm, a massive federal securities fraud action brought in the Southern District of New York.
