Brunswick opens fifth US office with a new suite in Chicago

Brunswick Group has announced the expansion of its US footprint with the opening in Chicago of its fifth American office.

Brunswick’s Chicago office will serve as its Midwestern hub, providing senior counsel to the Midwest’s leading regional and global companies on critical issues and stakeholder relations, including mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, employee engagement, crisis, litigation, and executive transitions.

Jayne Rosefield, previously a Partner in the New York office, will head up the Chicago office.

Rosefield said: “Chicago’s diverse network of global businesses and forward-thinking leaders make it a natural choice in which to establish a Brunswick presence. It is my privilege to open the firm’s fifth American office in such a vibrant and important market.”

Susan Gilchrist, group chief executive officer, said: “With so many of the world’s great companies based in the Midwest, we wanted to have a strong presence here too, supporting our clients on their biggest issues.”
