Law360 will profile the Jones Day Rising Stars listed below in the coming weeks. 

Ms. Leitch routinely advises clients on capital raising transactions, M&A, corporate governance, and SEC compliance.

She represents corporate and master limited partnership (MLP) issuers and investment banks in a variety of public and private securities transactions, and she advises energy clients on M&A transactions, including stock and asset purchases and sales, joint ventures, and private equity investments.

He has helped to recover hundreds of millions of dollars in insurance coverage for corporate policyholders. Mr. Lissy plays a key role in counseling and litigating on behalf of corporate and individual policyholders in some of the most complex, high-stakes coverage litigation across the country.
