CHICAGO — Barnes & Thornburg announced today that Jeremy Lewin has rejoined the firm’s Chicago office as a partner in the Corporate department. Lewin was a partner with Barnes & Thornburg for nearly a decade before serving as general counsel for a large national medical society and its six affiliated entities, and as a principal for another firm’s nonprofit and employment practice groups.
In his corporate practice, Lewin will leverage his understanding of the federal investigative process when working with clients on regulatory and compliance matters. In addition to his private practice experience, Lewin served as a federal investigator and mediator with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
“Jeremy is a fantastic attorney, investigator and litigator who is skilled in helping clients identify issues quickly and early to mitigate risks,” said David Gotlieb, chair of Barnes & Thornburg’s Corporate department. “His diverse experience makes him a welcome and important asset to our practice.”
Lewin handles corporate governance, employment, regulatory and transactional matters for a host of national associations and for-profit companies across a broad range of industries.
His practice also includes coordinating multi-specialty litigation efforts on behalf of a coalition of national medical association clients. Lewin also will focus on helping clients develop risk mitigation strategies, including harassment and discrimination training programs and individual coaching for staff, executives, and board members. He has provided training programs to thousands of people across industries, including multiple Fortune 100 companies and national nonprofit associations.
“We’re thrilled to have Jeremy back as part of our team,” said Michael Carrillo, managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg’s Chicago office. “He’s an important staple in the Chicago and Washington, D.C., legal communities and we welcome his return to the firm.”
Lewin earned his J.D. from Loyola University Chicago School of Law and his B.A. from DePaul University with honors.
