About Jenner & Block

Jenner & Block is an internationally recognized law firm that has served clients across the world since its founding in 1914. With five offices across the globe, including in Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, DC, the firm has a team of more than 500 lawyers dedicated to delivering exceptional results in the most complex and demanding legal matters, both litigation and transactions. At Jenner & Block, lawyers do not consider the practice of law a job, but rather a calling to serve clients, the profession and the community. Our powerful combination of experience, professionalism and teamwork helps clients achieve their goals, no matter what legal challenge is presented. Our clients range from the top ranks of the Fortune 500, large privately held corporations and financial services institutions to emerging companies, family-run businesses and individuals, all of whom put their trust in our firm to handle their most sensitive and consequential matters. Jenner & Block is proud to have secured significant litigation victories from the trial level through the United States Supreme Court, and to have been widely recognized for producing outstanding results in corporate transactions.

Office Description:

The Chicago office is Jenner & Block's first and largest office - the birthplace and center from which the firm has built its reputation and culture.? The firm first opened its doors in 1914 as Newman, Poppenhusen & Stern, a three-person firm located in downtown Chicago in a building that was erected soon after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.? Today, Jenner & Block is one of the largest law firms in Chicago.? Approximately 330 of the firm's lawyers are based in the firm's 1.1-million-square-foot office at 353 N. Clark, in a Class A, LEED-certified office tower. Lawyers in our Chicago office are involved in high-profile litigation and substantial transactions. The Chicago office made headlines in the latter part of the 2000s when the firm represented the examiner in the Lehman Brothers Holdings bankruptcy and General Motors in its blockbuster IPO. We handle high-stakes, mission-critical litigation for Fortune 100 companies and other large organizations, delivering unmatched strength in all areas of dispute resolution. Our Chicago office attracts notable lateral partners across a host of distinguished practice disciplines, from corporate transactions and white collar to patent to appellate litigation. Many of these partners come from high-ranking government positions or have led practices at other firms.? We also attract high-quality associates, many of whom were editors of their law school journals and have clerked for federal and state trial and appellate judges across the country.? Because so many of our national practices are headquartered in our Chicago office, associates have extensive opportunities to gain experience in different areas and participate in challenging cases and deals. Though it is our largest office, Chicago's atmosphere is collegial and teamwork-focused, with a high degree of internal cooperation among the various practices.? Further, the firm is committed to a "one-firm" approach throughout all five offices; lawyers work collaboratively on myriad matters. This approach is an integral part of our culture and a cornerstone of our success in all of our offices today.
