DLA Piper is pleased to announce that Kathleen Ruhland, global co-chair of the firm’s Corporate practice, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business’s 2024 Notable Women in Law list.

The prestigious list recognizes lawyers who are “steering multibillion-dollar deals, earning high-dollar awards and securing outcomes that can't be measured in money,” as well as serving as mentors within their firms and taking on leadership roles in their communities.

In her practice, Ruhland advises clients on complex cross-border transactions – including global M&A, restructuring and joint ventures – in established and emerging markets throughout the world. She advises leading corporations across a variety of sectors, with a particular emphasis on the consumer goods, food and beverage, agricultural and industrial sectors.

In addition to her role as global co-chair of the Corporate practice, Ruhland serves as a member of DLA Piper’s governing Executive and Management Committees. She is also a former co-chair of DLA Piper's Food & Beverage sub-sector and a former chair of its Leadership Alliance for Women (LAW) resource group.
