Lisa Duarte Named One of 50 Most Powerful Chicagoans by Chicago Magazine

March 1, 2024

Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres Partner Lisa Duarte has been selected to the Power 50 list by Chicago Magazine. The list recognizes the 50 most powerful Chicagoans who know how to use their influence to make things happen in the city and beyond.

In an interview for Chicago Magazine, Lisa discusses the roots of her power and influence, describing how a trip to City Hall on behalf of a client sparked a new career trajectory in government affairs and regulatory law.

In 2022, Lisa was named to the board of Latino Victory, a national organization focused on building progressive Latino political power across the country. Lisa further developed her political experience as legislative counsel to former mayor Rahm Emanuel and assistant deputy governor to J.B. Pritzker. Now the largest minority group in Chicago and Illinois, Latinos are fighting for more representation on the City Council and in the state legislature — and Lisa will play a key role.
