Chicago partner Andrew C. Porter was quoted in a New York Times article titled, “El Chapo’s Extradition Draws Tinge of Regret in Chicago,” which chronicled the reaction in Chicago to the news that notorious drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera (known as El Chapo) would be first tried in New York, rather than Chicago.

Andrew, a former federal prosecutor who had helped oversee the case, discussed El Chapo’s considerable network of operations in North America, including Chicago. He noted that “The operation throughout the hemisphere is vast” and that “It was, and presumably still is, very, very sophisticated — a billion-dollar enterprise.”
