Senior Partner

Jack Levin

Jack S. Levin, disguised as a professional corporation, is a Senior Partner in the international law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP (Chicago office) specializing in complex business transactions, although it is widely rumored that the professional corporation does more of the work than does Jack.  In person Jack has long taught a course on venture capital/private equity transactions at both University of Chicago Law School and Harvard Law School, indoctrinating thousands of young minds in the devious art of combining complex business, tax and accounting concepts.  He is author of an exciting 1,425 page book Structuring Venture Capital, Private Equity, and Entrepreneurial Transactions (updated and republished annually since 1994) and co-author (along with the late Prof. Martin D. Ginsburg) of a smashing 5 volume 5,000 page treatise Mergers, Acquisitions, and Buyouts (updated and republished semi-annually since 1989).  He is also a CPA and winner of the Illinois Gold Medal, graduated summa cum laude, first in a class of 500, from Harvard Law School, and summa cum laude from Northwestern University’s undergraduate School of Business, served as Assistant to the Solicitor General of the United States under Archibald Cox and Thurgood Marshall, and before that as law clerk to the Chief Judge of the Federal Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
