Just weeks into Jami Wintz McKeon’s first term as chair of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, the firm took on over 700 new people and opened two new offices, while significantly expanding others, as the firm absorbed the bulk of Bingham McCutchen.

Five years later, McKeon embarked this month on her second term leading the firm, which has grown from 1,100 to over 2,000 lawyers, and now has 14 of its 31 offices outside of the U.S. That makes for a rigorous travel schedule: in the weeks before we met at Morgan Lewis’ Philadelphia office, she’d been from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to Washington to California and back to the east coast.
