Jenner & Block

New York

Established in 2005, our office is located in midtown at 919 Third Avenue.  Our 50-plus lawyers practice in a collegial environment and offer our clients extensive experience in a wide array of litigation, corporate and bankruptcy practice areas.

The firm’s renowned strength in litigation is well represented in the New York office.  Our lawyers offer exceptional experience in complex commercial disputes, entertainment and new media matters, securities litigation, white collar criminal defense and investigations, international arbitration and intellectual property issues. Partners include four former federal prosecutors, the former chief of the Criminal Division of the New York State Attorney General’s Office and two of New York’s leading copyright/entertainment litigators who are recognized as among the nation’s best by leading law publications. The New York office’s managing partner joined us after serving as general counsel of a Fortune 100 company and previously headed the litigation practice at one of New York’s leading firms.

Our corporate practice represents clients in a variety of merger and acquisition, securities and private equity transactions and regularly counsels clients on matters of corporate governance and federal securities law.  Our experienced New York-based corporate lawyers have handled some of our clients’ most critical transactions in a variety of industries, including automotive, defense and aerospace, financial services, investment management, life sciences, media, pharmaceuticals and technology. The integration of our corporate practice across offices assures our clients the highest level of service on their corporate transactions.

The partners in the office’s bankruptcy practice have participated in many of the leading bankruptcies of the past decade, and include former clerks in the Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. They have particular competence in derivatives, structured finance and other sophisticated financial instruments and apply that knowledge in litigation and bankruptcy proceedings.

Many of our partners, in multiple practice areas, are recognized as highly accomplished by Chambers and other guides. Our associates are also a remarkable group, drawn largely from prestigious federal clerkships, other leading firms, public interest organizations and, increasingly, the office’s summer program.

The New York office is growing by attracting first-rate lawyers. We have recently added many talented individuals to our ranks, including the former Special Inspector General for the US $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program, one of the authors of the 1978 US Bankruptcy Code and other lawyers with a variety of in-house and global firm experience. Our lawyers are drawn to our office by the opportunity to practice law in an intensely collaborative and informal atmosphere within a world-class firm that has a clear commitment to the highest values of the legal profession.
