Jenner & Block

From Our Managing Partner

It is an honor for me, as the managing partner of Jenner & Block, to introduce the firm to you through our website and tell you what I believe distinguishes us from other law firms and makes this a special place to be a client, an attorney or a member of our world-class team of support staff.

In 2014, our firm celebrated its centennial anniversary.  Although much has changed in that time – both as to the firm and to the business of law – some things have remained the same.  In particular, our unique commitment to serving our clients and the communities in which we work and live has endured for more than 100 years, I believe, because we are individuals who share not only a sense of purpose – to exceed our clients’ expectations while maintaining the highest professional standards – but also core values that guide us as lawyers and as people.

These values include not only our unbending commitment to excellence and the cause of our clients, but also our unwavering, and unparalleled, commitment to pro bono and public service; to diversity and inclusion within our firm, the legal profession and society-at-large; and to developing and supporting superior talent.  I am proud to be a member of a firm that has put its commitment to its values into writing and measures its successes in terms of these principles.

I encourage you to navigate our website, where you will learn more about our rich history, the wide range of legal services we provide and our continuing accomplishments on behalf of our clients.

Thank you for taking the time to discover what Jenner & Block is about.
