Christine A. Edwards, partner, Corporate Practice Group, Winston & Strawn

Even from a young age, Christine Edwards was never afraid to ask questions and push back. Yet a career as a lawyer came only after a stint in the financial service sector. After earning her J.D., she rose to become executive vice president and chief legal officer at Bank One Corp., a predecessor to JPMorgan Chase. There, she oversaw Bank One’s 500-person legal, compliance, government relations and regulatory management department.

Since going into private practice in 2003, Edwards has represented boards of directors, special committees, chief legal officers and financial services companies. She focuses on the regulation of the financial services industry with a particular emphasis on securities and banking industries, as well as corporate governance and public and regulatory policy issues.
