Greenberg Traurig Adds Litigator Natalie F. Wayne in Chicago

Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is expanding its Litigation and White Collar Crime & Special Investigations practices in its Chicago office, adding Natalie F. Wayne as of counsel. Wayne joins the firm from Mayer Brown LLP where she was an associate in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice.

Wayne represents corporations and individuals in complex federal white collar and regulatory defense and internal investigations, as well as in complex litigation in federal and state courts.

“We are delighted to welcome Natalie to the Chicago office, where she will bring even further depth to our award-winning Litigation Practice,” Chicago Co-Managing Shareholders John F. Gibbons and Rita M. Powers said. “Her exceptionally versatile legal talent and significant experience will undoubtedly prove invaluable to our clients.”

Wayne’s white collar and investigations practice spans a wide range of sectors and subject areas. She advises clients in matters involving the False Claims Act (FCA), fraud, and consumer protection. Her civil litigation practice involves matters related to business disputes, FCA, qui tam, mass torts, and antitrust issues. She has experience advising clients at all phases of litigation, including initial fact investigation, written discovery, defending and taking depositions, briefing and arguing dispositive motions, and preparing for trial. In particular, Wayne has deep experience in eDiscovery, including designing and implementing procedures for preserving and producing electronically stored information.

During her time at Mayer Brown, Wayne worked closely with William Michael, Jr. who joined Greenberg Traurig’s Minneapolis and Miami offices in June 2021 as co-chair of the firm’s Trial Practice Group. They will continue their collaboration, representing individuals and corporations in complex federal white collar civil and criminal cases, regulatory defense, and internal investigations. She will also work with Michael in the Minneapolis office, representing clients in the Twin Cities.

“I am thrilled to join Greenberg Traurig,” Wayne said. “I have been impressed by their dedication to client service and their long-standing commitment to cultivating and retaining talent. I look forward to collaborating with my new colleagues and leveraging the firm’s global platform to grow my practice. I am also excited to help build synergies between the Chicago and Minneapolis offices and to strengthen the firm’s already strong presence in the Midwest.”

Wayne earned her B.S., cum laude, from Georgetown University and her J.D., magna cum laude, from Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
