George Houhanisin Receives Two Up-and-Coming Recognitions


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce that Chicago-based Transactions Partner George Houhanisin has been recognized as a Notable Rising Star in Law by Crain’s Chicago Business as well as an Emerging Leader by M&A Network.

George focuses his practice on corporate finance matters. He represents private equity groups, commercial lending institutions and major public and private companies in the structuring, negotiation and documentation of domestic and international secured and unsecured financing transactions. He’s well-versed across a broad range of industries with particular expertise in healthcare.

Both awards speak to George’s legal accomplishments, as well as his leadership within the community. Crain’s Chicago Business highlighted his ability to “guide clients through uncertainties and market shifts of the pandemic” and applauded him for his commitment to the Firm’s pro bono committee and mentorship of younger lawyers.
