Sixty-three Jenner & Block attorneys were recently selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers in its 2011 guide to the “top 5 percent of attorneys” in the state.  In addition, 15 attorneys were recognized by the publication as “Rising Stars.”

Published in the February 2011 issue of Illinois Super Lawyers magazine, the list recognizes attorneys through a comprehensive, peer-review-based evaluation process, which includes surveying thousands of attorneys and asking them to nominate the best attorneys they had personally observed in action.

Partners Ronald R. Peterson, Harry J. Roper, Charles B. Sklarsky, Jerold S. Solovy, Thomas P. Sullivan and Anton R. Valukas are listed among “The Top 100 Illinois Super Lawyers 2011,” which consists of the lawyers who received the highest point totals in the balloting, research and the blue ribbon review process.  Mr. Valukas is also listed in the magazine’s “The Top 10” attorneys overall.

Partners E. Lynn Grayson and Terri L. Mascherin are among “The Top 50 Women Illinois Super Lawyers 2011,” having the highest point totals.

Partners Matt D. Basil, Gregory M. Boyle, Frank J. Eichenlaub,  Jason J. Green, Kristopher R. Kiel, Michelle M. McAtee, Erin R. Schrantz, Sally K. Sears Coder and Sandi J. Toll; Associates Reena R. Bajowala, Benjamin J. Bradford,  Matthew R. Devine, Sara Tonnies Horton and Olivia T. Luk; and Litigation Counsel Shyni R.
