CHICAGO – March 13, 2009 – Loeb & Loeb’s Raymond A. Sanseverino, Chair of the firm’s Real Estate Department represented Willis of Illinois, Inc., a subsidiary of Willis Group Holdings, in its lease of more than 140,000 square feet on multiple floors of the Sears Tower, the iconic 110-story skyscraper located at 233 S.
