Nicole Henning leads the Chicago office's Issues and Appeals Practice and is often called upon to brief and analyze complex and cutting-edge issues facing Jones Day's clients. She has helped clients to successfully navigate all manner of difficult litigation, but particularly focuses on qui tam litigation, white collar criminal cases, products liability cases, class actions, and tax disputes.

Nicole has significant experience in representing clients in nationwide, global settlements of qui tam litigation, developing in-depth knowledge of the damages and liability issues that often arise in False Claims Act (FCA) litigation. She has played a key role in internal investigations concerning alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKBS), and other securities laws and regulations. Although Nicole has successfully briefed appeals in numerous state and federal appellate courts and has successfully argued cases in the Illinois Appellate Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth, Seventh, and Ninth Circuits, her practice is not limited to appeals. She can be counted on to deliver results in the trial court as well, having litigated cases through every stage from initial pleadings to trial to merits briefing before the United States Supreme Court.

Nicole is a director of Bounce Children's Foundation, an organization that helps chronically ill children and their families. She serves on the Chicago office's pro bono committee and the National Immigrant Justice Center's Leadership Board. She is a member of the Appellate Lawyers Association and the Seventh Circuit Bar Association.
