Perkins Coie announced today that Caryn Trombino, a partner in the firm’s white-collar and investigations group out of Chicago, has been appointed as chair of that practice and is the first woman to hold that role.

Trombino was also one of the first women partners to join the group, which has taken on a more significant role within the firm after the addition of 17 attorneys from New York boutique Richards Kibbe & Orbe back in December 2020.
