Partner Andrew F. Merrick was named the recipient of the Chicago Bar Foundation’s (CBF) 2016 Maurice Weigle Exceptional Young Lawyer Award. The award is named in memory of two exceptional lawyers – father and son – who each exhibited a lifelong devotion to the law and the community. The son, Maurice S. Weigle, pictured to the right, was a Jenner & Block partner in the 1970s and ‘80s. Specifically, the award is based on a lawyer’s contributions to furthering the ideals of the legal profession; making the organized bar an effective force for improving the profession and helping the community; and demonstrated commitment to pro bono and community service.
