Three Chuhak & Tecson Principals honored as "Notable Women Lawyers" by Crain's Chicago Business

Chuhak & Tecson, P.C., is proud to announce that Crain’s Chicago Business is honoring principals Kristen Hudson, Lindsey Paige Markus and Eileen Sethna as three of the city’s “Notable Women Lawyers.”

In a special custom content section, Crain’s is recognizing accomplished women attorneys who work tirelessly to effect positive change, serve as inspirations and mentors to other women attorneys and commit their time and talents to charitable organizations and philanthropic endeavors.

“These three powerful and well-respected attorneys are very deserving of this honor,” says Terrell Isselhard, co-chair of Chuhak & Tecson’s Diversity & Inclusion Council. “Every day, their talents as lawyers and value as colleagues manifest themselves through their leadership roles inside and outside the firm and their commitment to the firm’s values of opportunity, inclusion and service. We could not be prouder of them.”

Kristen Hudson’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation and policyholder-side insurance coverage matters. Relishing strategic challenges and forceful advocacy in equal measure, Kristen is a sought-after trial lawyer known for effectively advancing her clients' interests inside and outside the courtroom. The commitment Kristen brings to her clients is matched by her dedication to serving the community, mentoring the next generation of women lawyers and championing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Lindsey Paige Markus draws on her early career in business, finance and neuroscience to craft and implement creative solutions for the estate planning, wealth protection and corporate needs of individuals and businesses. Leader of the firm’s 22-attorney Estate Planning & Asset Protection Group, Lindsey is an indispensable resource for clients who entrust her with their finances and futures. She has earned honors and gratitude for her tireless philanthropic efforts and plays an instrumental role in the firm’s Women Helping Women initiative.

Eileen Sethna provides banks, financial institutions, funds and investors with thoughtful and holistic guidance throughout the entire lifecycle of loans, credit facilities and other complex financing transactions. Leader of the firm’s 33-attorney national banking practice, Eileen crafts meticulous documentation and structuring on the front-end, deftly navigates workouts and insolvencies and brings her formidable advocacy skills to fiercely contested litigation. She is an indefatigable advocate for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, helping to raise record-breaking sums for Misericordia and Special Olympics.
