Reed Smith Partner Michelle Moore Named an Influential Woman in Mid-Market M&A by Mergers & Acquisitions

CHICAGOMichelle Moore, a partner in Reed Smith’s Global Corporate Group, was selected to the 2023 Most Influential Women in Mid-Market M&A list by Mergers & Acquisitions. Moore is among 18 honorees from a variety of firms in the M&A ecosystem including private equity shops, law firms and investment banks.

Moore’s practice primarily focuses on the areas of domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (both for private equity and strategic acquirers) and general corporate counseling. She represents her clients in their structuring and formation, acquisitions and divestitures, recapitalizations, management buyouts and restructurings.

Commended as a middle-market dealmaker who has “an ongoing commitment to advance the state of women in financial services,” Moore has mentored and sponsored dozens of women lawyers, both at Reed Smith and as their careers have taken them in-house, to other firms, and to other careers altogether. She is also an active member of both the firm’s and the Chicago office’s local WINRS (Women’s Initiative Network, Reed Smith) network.
