Clark Hill Managing Member Ray Koenig Re-appointed to Chicago Commission on Human Relations
Clark Hill Managing Member Ray J. Koenig III has been re-appointed to the Chicago Commission on Human Relations. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot re-nominated Koenig for his fifth consecutive term since 2012 and the Chicago City Council confirmed the nomination during the week of Jan. 26.
The commission enforces the Chicago Human Rights Ordinance and the Chicago Fair Housing Ordinance, adjudicates violations of those ordinances, provides victims of hate crimes with assistance, and educates residents and communities to prevent and alleviate discrimination, hate crimes, and inter-group tensions.
“I’m honored to continue the commission’s work to help the city protect and promote equal rights, and share ideas with thought leaders,” Koenig said.
Koenig is the Second Vice President of the Chicago Bar Association, a member of the Board of Directors at the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education, a member of the Pride Action Tank Advisory Council, and the immediate past Chair of the Board at Chicago House and Social Service Agency.
Koenig, a member of Clark Hill’s Litigation practice group, is the Managing Member of Clark Hill’s Chicago office and an elected member of the firm’s national Executive Committee. Ray Koenig represents individuals, families, financial and medical institutions, charities, and governmental agencies in probate, trust, and guardianship controversies, including complex matters which require practical solutions.
