Partner Craig C. Martin, Chairman, Midwest, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business’ Who’s Who 2024, an annual guide to the leaders of the Chicago business community.

Craig was once again recognized as one of the city’s foremost lawyers and civic leaders in Crain’s “authoritative guide to power in Chicago.” He is one of only 20 honorees in the legal industry section of the Who’s Who guide. Craig was similarly recognized in the 2023 edition.

Craig is widely recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in the country and counsel to marquee clients, including major Chicago companies and some of the nation’s most influential families. He led the opening of Willkie’s Chicago office in March 2020 and has quickly established it as a market leader, building a diverse team of 90 attorneys.

As part of his Who’s Who profile, Craig reflected on the challenges of the pandemic and how the experience affirmed his relationships with colleagues and clients. 

“It was an intense time, but because we know our clients and understand their business, we have always been able to provide really targeted, smart counsel that advances their interests and helps them reach their goals,” Craig told Crain’s Chicago Business. “If anything, the pandemic highlighted for me the strength of our team and the real bond we have with our clients when things are good and when the going gets tough.”
