Jami McKeon last month received a vote of confidence from her colleagues at Morgan Lewis & Bockius who unanimously reelected her as the firm’s chair for a second term.
Since her initial election in 2014 McKeon has been credited with transforming Morgan Lewis into a global legal powerhouse. She oversaw the addition of more than 750 lawyers and professional staff from Bingham McCutcheon and the firm’s expansion into Asia.
Today, McKeon leads a firm of some 2,000 lawyers across 30 offices. In addition, she maintains an active practice, advising clients in high-stakes crisis litigation, and regulatory investigations.
McKeon, one of a handful of women leading an Am Law 100 firm, sits on WILEF’s Global Advisory Board. During her tenure as chair, Morgan Lewis has been a four-time WILEF Gold Standard firm.
“It has been a privilege to serve as the Chair of our firm over the past several years, and I am excited to have the opportunity to continue to lead our organization,” said McKeon. “During my 37 years at Morgan Lewis, I have been lucky to have the best of colleagues and the best of clients. I am proud of the things we have accomplished together and optimistic about what we will continue to accomplish in the future.”
