Patrick Fitzgerald

Age: 53

Occupation: Attorney, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom

When he was the U.S. attorney in Chicago, Fitzgerald put away former governors George Ryan and Rod Blagojevich. At Skadden, Fitzgerald handles internal investigations, government enforcement matters, and civil litigation—which is just a way of saying that the law firm has a lion in its den.
