Akerman LLP Key Developments

Akerman Announces Executive Appointments

Akerman reported the addition of three partners to its Chicago office, and has now more than doubled the size of its Chicago team since opening the office five months ago with eight lawyers. The new partners, litigator Christine Bautista, healthcare lawyer Carolyn Metnick, and bankruptcy lawyer Michael Molinaro, bolster Akerman's national strengths in the financial services and healthcare industries, particularly in financial and securities litigation. They also expand the firm's capabilities in white collar crime and government investigation matters. Bautista joins the firm from the U.S. Attorney's Office, while Metnick joins from Barnes & Thornburg and Molinaro arrives from Reed Smith. Bautista is the second former Assistant U.S. Attorney to join Akerman's Chicago office in recent weeks, following the arrival of Paul Lillios who most recently served as a federal administrative law judge in Chicago for the last 20 years. Bautista joins Akerman's Litigation Practice Group, concentrating her practice in white collar criminal defense and internal investigations, complex commercial litigation, and Bank Secrecy Act compliance issues. She is a trial lawyer with experience in criminal and civil investigations and prosecutions by the federal government and its enforcement agencies. She has worked with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and tax authorities in various parallel investigations and has experience prosecuting white collar crimes, including securities fraud, tax fraud, money laundering, bank fraud, and public corruption. Molinaro brings more than 30 years of experience to Akerman's Bankruptcy and Reorganization Practice Group.
