Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, is proud to announce that Maureen A. McGuire has received the distinction as one of Chicago’s Notable Women Lawyers, by Crain’s Chicago Business. The women featured in this publication represent an impressive cross-section of Chicago-area legal industry leaders, many of whom have served with distinction for decades.

When female equity partners were scarce, Maureen A. McGuire became one of three managing partners at her first firm. She then formed her own firm 25 years ago, representing transportation, hospitality, and corporate clients. She brought her practice to Anderson, Rasor & Partners, where she is one of seven women partners out of a total of ten partners. Recently, she resolved several railroad cases seeking multimillion-dollar awards and assisted in the merger of two long-term care facilities.


Announcement: William “Bill” C. Anderson, III has retired!

After 38 years in the practice of law and zealous advocacy on behalf of his clients, Bill Anderson retired at the end of 2017.

Among other things, he was elected a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a premier legal association in North America.  He was also a Director of the Society of Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only group comprising Illinois’ top trial lawyers.  As a founding partner of Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, Bill helped build an exceptional firm focused on trial practice in state and federal courts and healthcare counseling.  It is with mixed emotions that the firm bids farewell to Bill, wishing him an enjoyable retirement.
