Schiff Hardin LLP is proud to announce that Managing Partner Marci Eisenstein has been named one of Chicago Business Journal’s 2018 Women of Influence, which honors women business leaders who stand out for both their business achievements and their commitment to their community.
With a legal career spanning more than 30 years, Marci is renowned for her defense of major corporations against numerous class action challenges. She is one of the few lawyers in the country to try a nationwide consumer class action to verdict.

A founding member of the firm’s Diversity Committee, Marci’s commitment to the professional advancement of women and minorities is affirmed by the firm’s repeated recognition for having above-average representation of both women and minorities at every level, from associates to equity partners.
