BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2016) - Jennifer Conway Fenn, counsel in the Finance & Restructuring Group at Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP, has been named a 2016 "Emerging Leader" in the Legal Advisor category by The M&A Advisor. The Emerging Leader awards are given to a group of young professionals in the mergers & acquisitions, financing, and turnaround industries in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe who have "reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community."
