Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres is pleased to share that Jason Arnold has joined the growing Chicago firm as partner. Jason is a highly experienced corporate attorney and business advisor who brings nearly 15 years of experience as both in-house and outside counsel for public and private companies. His principal practice areas are mergers and acquisitions, securities, corporate governance, and business counseling.
Throughout his career, Jason has advised purchasers and sellers in a wide range of company mergers and acquisitions, strategic investments, and joint ventures ranging in size from $5 million to over $3 billion. In addition to his extensive transactional experience, Jason has counseled companies and boards of directors on governance, financing, securities and compliance matters.
“I’m very happy to be joining Croke Fairchild to support the remarkable growth happening across the practice,” said Arnold. “It’s a young, energetic firm with prestigious attorneys who recognize what clients want and, just as important, what they don’t want. That’s an attractive prospect for both attorney and client.”
Jason was formerly a member of in-house legal departments in publicly traded Fortune 500 companies. His business experience spans a variety of industries, including consumer packaged goods, energy and transportation and logistics.
“Jason brings a broad range of experience and perspective that will elevate our corporate practice and position our clients to win,” said Drew Beres, managing partner at Croke Fairchild. “Attorneys who have spent time in-house understand the value of hands-on, strategic business and legal counsel. Our clients will appreciate his approach, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.”
Jason earned his J.D. from the University of Tulsa and his B.S. from Oklahoma State. He lives in the Chicago area with his family.
