Rising Star
Award Recipient


John Eggum of Foran Glennon Palandech Ponzi & Rudloff, PC is the 2017 recipient of the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel (IDC) Rising Star Award. The award was presented during the organization’s 53rd Annual Meeting, held June 30, 2017, in Chicago.

Mr. Eggum distinguished himself by serving as Vice Chair of the IDC Legislative Committee and Young Lawyers Division (YLD). His involvement with the IDC Legislative Committee included monitoring legislation, offering testimony in the Illinois General Assembly, and authoring the IDC Quarterly Legislative Update column. In addition, John was actively involved with the YLD Spirit of the Season Fundraiser, young lawyer outings and educational programs, and outreach to law school students.

Past President R. Mark Mifflin of Giffin, Winning, Cohen & Bodewes, P.C., in Springfield, remarks “John has been an active member of the Young Lawyers Division of the IDC, including co-chairing a very successful Spirit of the Season charitable fundraiser. He has also been actively involved as Vice Chairman of the Legislative Committee. John has expended a great deal of time and effort for many different activities for the IDC. We look forward to many great things from John.”

“IDC is distinguished both by the work it does and, perhaps more importantly, the great people that contribute to IDC. I have enjoyed the last several years working with IDC immensely, and am honored to receive the Rising Star Award. I look forward to many more years of helping the organization continue to grow and improve the practice of law in Illinois,” said John.

John Eggum is a partner with Foran Glennon Palandech Ponzi & Rudloff P.C. in Chicago, where he concentrates his practice on insurance coverage matters and commercial litigation. He represents insurers, TPAs, brokers, and captive managers in professional liability disputes, and also litigates cyber/technology liability claims.
