Chicago law firm Jenner & Block has announced the recruiting of Mark Harris, the former head of Will & Emery’s private equity practice, as Jenner’s new head of private equity. Harris joined Jenner & Block last week as the co-chair of the private equity practice.

Lateral and high-profile recruits of partners for its corporate and other practices is a continuing strategy at Jenner & Block, and in recent years the law firm has made several noteworthy recruits. In January 2011, Jenner & Block hired Wesley Fredericks from Goodwin Procter and later two more of his colleagues, Kevin Collins and Jason Casella.

Earlier this month, former Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli rejoined Jenner’s Washington office as a partner. Perrelli is currently leading Jenner & Block’s Government Controversies and Public Policy Litigation practice group in Washington.
