Wexler Wallace Names Three Partners
Wexler Wallace is pleased to announce that Amber M. Nesbitt, Mark R. Miller and Kara A. Elgersma have become partners at the firm, effective July 1, 2013.
Amber began her legal career in 2003, working at the firm as a law clerk and summer associate. Upon her graduation from Loyola University School of Law, she joined Wexler Wallace as an associate. Since that time, Amber has gone on to become a key leader in several of the firm’s antitrust cases, playing a significant role in obtaining class certification in the In re Wellbutrin XL Antitrust Litigation.
Mark, a Loyola graduate as well, joined Wexler Wallace as an associate in 2006. Over the years, Mark has taken a prominent role in the firm’s mass tort practice, playing pivotal roles in the discovery and bellwether trials in ongoing litigation. In addition to the mass tort practice, Mark has continued to litigate several of the firm’s securities, business and commercial litigation cases.
Both Amber and Mark were named Rising Stars by Illinois SuperLawyers in 2012 and 2013.
Kara, a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, joined the firm as Of Counsel in 2010. Prior to Wexler Wallace, Kara was a partner at K&L Gates, working in the Antitrust and Trade Regulation Department. Since joining Wexler Wallace, Kara has been fully engaged in litigating several of the firm’s business, antitrust and securities cases. In addition, she is active in false claims litigation.
Announcing these exciting events to the firm, Ken Wexler, managing partner of Wexler Wallace, noted that the elevation of these lawyers “is a testament to perseverance, hard work, and the respect [Amber, Mark and Kara] have earned for the firm and for themselves.” We congratulate them and are proud of their accomplishments.
