“Mary Liz is a great fit with the Chicago office and a welcome addition to our flourishing transactional team,” said Zach Fardon, managing partner of the firm’s Chicago office. “We are excited to have her play a role in growing our Chicago platform and further developing our finance practice here.”
Mary Liz received her J.D., cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame Law School, where she served as the senior articles editor of the Journal of College and University Law. She received her B.A., cum laude, from Colgate University. She joins the firm from Kirkland & Ellis.
“I have worked with several of my new King & Spalding colleagues before and, in watching their careers, have been impressed with the opportunity the firm’s platform has given them to grow their practices,” said Brady. “I am excited to collaborate with my colleagues across the firm to expand relationships with financial services and other clients and to build new ones, as well.”
