Firm Overview

Built on more than a century of client service, Jenner & Block is a destination law firm for complex commercial litigation, important investigations and sophisticated corporate transactional work. The firm is defined by exceptional results and shared values, as well as by the clients it serves and, most importantly, the nearly 500 lawyers, whose experience, professionalism and teamwork help clients achieve their goals. Jenner & Block is also well known for its extraordinary commitment to pro bono and public service, where its lawyers provided nearly 91,000 hours of pro bono work in 2017.

Jenner & Block’s Litigation Department handles its clients’ most sensitive and sizable matters, earning the firm its reputation as one of the most prominent and successful litigation departments. Known as an elite trial and investigations powerhouse, its experience includes hundreds of headline-grabbing results from a $940 million jury verdict in a trade secrets case to investigating the collapse of Lehman Brothers. In addition, Jenner & Block lawyers are trial-tested, in part through its award-winning pro bono program, which develops seasoned advocates from the earliest days of their careers.

The firm’s sophisticated corporate practice is equally committed to excellence, and covers a broad array of complex transactions and counseling for a wide range of clients. From counseling General Dynamics in its US$9.7 billion acquisition of CSRA to representing US Foods Holding Corp. in its US$1.175 billion Initial Public Offering and assisting GM in its US$3 billion bond offering, we bring real solutions to unique matters.

Approximately 20 percent of the firm’s partners are recognized by Chambers and Partners which, in 2018, also ranked seven of our practices as “Band 1,” Chambers’ highest level of recommendation. Among our lawyers are 12 Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a former Acting Solicitor General of the United States and 11 former Supreme Court clerks. We also count among our ranks the former Associate Attorney General of the United States, two former United States Attorneys, 11 former Assistant United States Attorneys and former prosecutors from the UK Serious Fraud Office. The former Special Inspector General of TARP, the former Associate Director of Enforcement of the Securities and Exchange Commission and former General Counsels of Fortune 100 companies also practice at Jenner & Block. In 2018, The American Lawyer named Jenner & Block to its A-List, which recognizes the 20 top-performing law firms across the United States; this was the seventh time the firm has made the list since it was initiated in 2003.
