Jenner & Block Partner Mercedes M. Hill has been named a 2015 “40 Under 40 Emerging Leader” by The M&A Advisor.  Ms. Hill was recognized in the “Legal Advisor” category. 

The winners were selected for their accomplishments in business and service to the community by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.  In addition to Legal Advisor, young men and women in the categories of “Dealmaker” and “Service Professional” were also recognized.

Ms. Hill will receive the award and be recognized on June 29, 2015, at a black tie Awards Gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, during The M&A Advisor’s 2015 Emerging Leaders Summit.  The Summit provides a unique opportunity for current and past Emerging Leader Award winners to connect with peers and prominent global business leaders.

This is the sixth year of the M&A Advisor’s 40 Under 40 Awards, which was initiated to recognize high-achieving young professionals in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, financing and restructuring.

Ms. Hill has been a key team member on some of the firm's largest deals, most recently the representation of Archer Daniels Midland in the $1.3 billion and $440 million carve-outs of its global cocoa and chocolate businesses.
