Benesch announced that Gregg A. Eisenberg has been reelected Managing Partner of the firm for an unprecedented third time, for a four-year term beginning in 2021. The partnership decided on this reelection two years ahead of the actual date to commence Eisenberg’s third-term.
Under Eisenberg’s leadership, Benesch has thrived with over 70 attorneys having joined the firm in the last 18 months alone, the opening of the San Francisco office in early 2019 and the opening of the Chicago office in 2015, which is now home to over 50 attorneys. Since making its debut on the AmLaw 200 list in 2016, Benesch has advanced 15 places and is currently ranked at number 180.
“Gregg has implemented and executed an aggressive and highly profitable growth strategy for the firm,” said Ira C. Kaplan, Chairman of Benesch. “Thanks to his strong management and his unwavering commitment to always enhancing client service, Benesch is flourishing. We look forward to his next term as the firm continues to expand its attorney ranks and client base.”
“Benesch has been my home for the last 21 years. I am humbled and honored to have been reelected and look forward to continuing to expand the firm’s national presence,” said Eisenberg. “As always, our clients and their businesses remain our steadfast focus and we will continue to strive to deliver the highest quality service possible.”
In addition to serving as Managing Partner, Eisenberg maintains an active corporate practice. He represents some of the nation’s largest and most active corporate buyers and private equity firms. Many of Eisenberg’s clients seek his advice for their Boards of Directors and for significant strategic matters.
