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.

According to the release at Winston & Strawn’s website, Thomas Frederick, chair of Winston’s Litigation Department was quoted as saying: “Caryn clearly brings enormous talent, energy, and experience to our litigation team. The depth of her experience in complex securities and corporate governance litigation will greatly increase the depth of our national litigation services and will undoubtedly be welcomed by our corporate clientele.”

Winston & Strawn LLP is an international law firm with more than 900 attorneys in 14 offices in Asia, America and Europe. The firm serves the needs of enterprises of all types and sizes, in both the private and the public sector.
