Clients turn to our New York office for high-profile and high-impact litigation, investigations, monitorships, corporate transactions, and other business-critical challenges and opportunities. We combine experience, vision, and judgment to guide companies in the media and entertainment, fintech, and cannabis industries, among many others, through their most complex legal and business challenges. Unlike many peer firms, we are able to take on much of Wall Street and the financial institutions sector.
Our lawyers represent clients before federal trial and appeals courts around the United States, in New York and other state courts, and before the US Department of Justice, the Securities Exchange Commission, and other federal and state agencies. Our work includes matters of national security, foreign governments, and global strategy.
Lawyers in our New York office are leaders in our Business Litigation; Content, Media, and Entertainment; Corporate; Investigations, Compliance, and Defense; Monitorship; Culture Risk and Sensitive Investigations; National Security, Sanctions, and Export Controls; Fintech and Cryptocurrency; and Restructuring and Bankruptcy practices.
Our New York lawyers include a former Special Counsel to President Biden and US Ambassador; the former Special Inspector General of the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP); a former Chief Regulatory Officer of the Department of Health and Human Services; former assistant US attorneys in the Eastern District of New York, the Southern District of New York, and elsewhere; a former senior official in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement; and many former federal judicial clerks.
Our New York lawyers live Jenner & Block’s values and contribute a significant portion of their time to representing people in need. We are active in New York bar and civic associations, and one of our partners is the President of the New York City Bar Association.
We offer a distinctive combination of exceptional people, challenging work, and superior mentorship and training to diverse candidates from judicial clerkships and top law schools.
