Degenshein also co-leads the firm’s Inclusion Committee and is instrumental in advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging initiatives at the firm.

Mann is an accomplished trial lawyer who represents clients in high-stakes civil litigation concerning a wide variety of subject matters, such as commercial contracts, corporate governance and fraud, with a particular emphasis on the financial services, commercial real estate, insurance and manufacturing industries. He also defends clients in legal malpractice lawsuits. He was inducted into the Midwest Real Estate News Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame based on his accomplishments as a trial lawyer for his commercial real estate clients, and is also a senior fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America. Mann joined the firm in early 2023 as part of the combination with Novack and Macey in Chicago, where he co-led the Real Estate Litigation practice and served as Business Development Partner.
