Top JP Morgan investment banker leaves for law firm
NEW YORK Feb 24 (Reuters) - Jim Woolery, co-head of JPMorgan's North American mergers and acquisitions business, is leaving the investment bank for a position at law firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft.
Chris Ventresca, who was previously co-head of the North American M&A unit with Woolery, will run the business on his own, JPMorgan spokeswoman Tasha Pelio said on Sunday.

He joined JPMorgan two years ago after serving as a partner for law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
