Jenkens & Gilchrist has increased the capabilities of its nationally recognized Financial Institutions practice group with the addition of Elizabeth H. Corey.

"Liz has extensive experience in banking regulations, including such hot button issues as BSA/AML, privacy and consumer compliance. Her vast experience will complement Jenkens & Gilchrist’s current practice strengths,” said Peter Weinstock, leader of the firm’s Financial Institutions Practice Group. “Her welcome addition will add significant depth for our clients.”

Ms. Corey’s experience includes over ten years as legal counsel to national bank examiners, supervisors and bank counsel on legal issues affecting national banks. As legal counsel with the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, she coordinated and consulted with state and federal bank regulatory agencies as well as federal and state law enforcement officials.

Ms. Corey received her B.B.A. from Hofstra University in 1977, and her J.D. from University of Houston Law Center in 1980.

Jenkens & Gilchrist is pleased to announce that Janet Garetto, Intellectual Property Law attorney, has been named one of “40 Illinois Attorneys to Watch Under 40,” by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company.

The recognition honors young Illinois attorneys who are true leaders in their profession. They are chosen in a nomination process that takes into account the candidates’ career achievements, how far they have risen in their fields, and their community work.

Ms. Garetto’s practice focuses on intellectual property counseling and litigation. She is recognized by her clients and peers for her intense focus on understanding her clients’ intellectual properties and business goals. Her clear understanding of the intersection between science and business is central to the confidence a growing number of clients place in her counsel.

A graduate of Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Ms. Garetto earned her Juris Doctor degree in 1997. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry at Northwestern University.

Ms. Garetto is actively involved with the professional community. She recently completed service as the Chair of the U.S. Patents Committee of the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago where she has also served as Vice Chair and Chair of the Membership Committee and was elected to the Board of Trustees and appointed Treasurer of the Association. She is a member of the American Intellectual Property Law Association, International Trademark Association, Chicago Bar Association and Justinian Society of Lawyers. Ms. Garetto also serves her local community as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Blue Island Public Library.

Jenkens & Gilchrist is a full-service law firm providing legal services to businesses and individuals with U.S. and international operations from offices in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C. Jenkens & Gilchrist serves clients worldwide in all areas of commercial activity.
