DLA Piper is pleased to announce that Chambers & Partners has named Jackie Hodes to its “Up & Coming Corporate/M&A Lawyer of the Year” shortlist, which is part of its “Women in Law” Awards honoring female rising stars of the corporate legal community. The “Women in Law” Awards will be presented at a February 2, 2012 ceremony at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.
Hodes, a partner in DLA Piper’s Corporate and Securities practice, focuses on mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions and general corporate matters. She joined DLA Piper in July from McDermott Will & Emery LLP, shortly after DLA Piper had launched its Miami office in March.
Hodes was recently honored as a recipient of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s “40 Under 40 Outstanding Lawyers of Miami-Dade County” for her demonstrated excellence in the field and contributions to the community and recognized by The Jewish Museum of Florida with the “Breaking the Glass Ceiling” Award.
